International bilateral meetings and working visits are an integral part of the international cooperation activities of the BMBWF.
The exchange of information and opinions with the relevant ministers of partner countries, with ambassadors and experts from abroad, contributes to the deepening of bilateral relations in education, science and research as well as to facilitating the intensification of bilateral and multilateral cooperation and projects both on the institutional and ministerial levels, as well as to positioning Austria in international competition.
Well-founded insights into systems and strategies of other countries in the fields of education, science and research enrich both national discussions and further developments.
