Our colleagues are taking part in the NAFSA in Philadelphia, USA, this week. Together with representatives of 24 Austrian higher education institutions they provide information and advice on studying and researching in Austria at the annual conference and education fair of the NAFSA Association of International Educators.
The fair was officially opened on May 29th with a keynote address by Laura Bush, former First Lady of the USA. Almost 10,000 visitors from 103 nations are attending NAFSA.
Approximately 400 people attended the Austrian reception, which was held together with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Fulbright Austria and Fulbright Germany. Lydia Skarits welcomed the guests on behalf of the OeAD. All participants especially welcomed the networking character of this event.
