Austrian-American Educational Cooperation Association
Österreichisch-Amerikanische Schul- und Bildungskooperation
The aim of this non-profit association, which was initiated with the support of the Austrian Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, is the development of a spectrum of Austrian-American cooperation in the area of education. After the two countries had carried out several highly successful projects together, the decision was taken to initiate the association in December 1992 in order that there could be an optimum utilization of the available resources. In particular, emphasis is placed on in-service teacher training and language programs, curriculum development and an exchange of ideas in bilingual, multicultural and vocational education. Further cooperative programs are being planned for representatives of school and education authorities.Both sides help each other by initiating contacts within the area of education, and in particular, supporting innovative developments, for instance in modern foreign language learning.
