Irish Studies at the University of Vienna
The Centre for Irish Studies at the University of Vienna is one of the most renowned in Europe and is a core member of the European Federation of Associations and Centres of Irish Studies (EFACIS).
Thanks to a co-funding arrangement between the Embassy of Ireland and the University of Vienna, a valuable collaboration has evolved, resulting in a range of activities and events that ensure that Ireland leaves its mark on Austria’s rich cultural landscape.
In addition to a wide range of public lectures, readings and other events, programmed under the stewardship of Professor Dr Werner Huber, the Memorandum of Understanding between the Embassy and the University also provides for a Visiting Irish Professorship.
