Information about the corona virus/COVID-19

The news situation regarding the spread of the disease caused by the corona virus is constantly changing worldwide. The Austrian Federal Government has taken measures to contain the COVID-19 virus spread and we would like to contribute to reducing its spread. It is not easy for us as an agency that promotes and encourages international exchange and networking to advocate social distance. However, our primary goal is our employees’ and customers’ health. Therefore we have defined extensive measures and had to cancel many events. Moreover, we recommend that you do not go abroad for the time being.

The OeAD staff have been instructed to avoid social contacts as far as possible and – where possible – to work from home. We would therefore ask you to contact us by e-mail if possible and only in very urgent cases to call us. You will find all contact details at

For general questions about the corona virus in connection with the OeAD’ activities we have set up an e-mail address: Current information regarding the Erasmus+ Education programme is available here:

We understand your worries and fears regarding the spread of the corona virus and we endeavour to continue to offer you the best possible support for your plans and projects. However, despite our best efforts, it may take longer to process your requests.
