Cooperations in Austria

To competently fulfil its extensive range of tasks, the Geological Survey cooperates with numerous institutions in Austria. These include universities as well as other research institutes, the Academy of Sciences and museums. 

Since the 1970's the ministry responsible for the Geological Survey of Austria has concluded administrative agreements with several other ministries. Those are mostly interested in the services, data and products of the Geological Survey, occasionally also on knowledge transfer. As part of the Federal-State Cooperation, the Geological Survey carries out projects in which the federal and provincial authorities of individual federal states contribute by providing financial and human resources.

The cooperation of the Survey with some states is additionally expanded and formalized. In the context of individual projects, the Geological Survey operates numerous collaborations with various academic institutions and university departments, some of which are designed to be permanent and formalized.
