IVI Austria Country Office
In 2021, IVI opened a proposal for the establishment of the IVI European Regional Office (IERO) and received an offer to host the IERO from Austria.
Although Sweden was eventually chosen to host the IERO, in 2022 IVI and the government of Austria agreed to establish a smaller IVI presence in Vienna.
From November 2022, IVI’s Austria Country Office will interface with the Austrian government and Austrian vaccine researchers to develop joint grant proposals and vaccine R&D projects.
The opening and operation of the IVI Austria Country Office are made possible by support from the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs (BMEIA) of Austria.
IVI Austria Country Office serves as IVI’s direct link to Austria, interfacing and networking with the Austrian government officials and ecosystem including health industry, biotech companies, academia, and research institutes to establish and execute vaccine R&D projects aligned with IVI’s strategy and objectives.
