AOS department “Internationalization”

Tasks of the AOS internationalization department:

The “Internationalization” department of AOS establishes contact with other companies and people in occupational science in German-speaking and English-speaking countries, expands cooperation and informs them about developments and events relating to occupational science in Austria. The department works closely with the Executive Committee and the media department.

The goals of the AOS internationalization department for the 2023-2025 term of office are:

  • Development and establishment of cooperation with associations and people in the field of occupational sciences. The focus here is primarily on the DACH region (Switzerland and Germany).
  • Promotion of AOS on an international level outside of the DACH region. – The aim is for clubs and individuals to know about the AOS and its activities on an international level.

Benefits from an AOS membership in this department:
By establishing AOS cooperations at international level, contacts can be made with international researchers and practitioners in the field of occupational sciences. AOS members are informed about international developments. For AOS events (e.g.: O’Science day), international speakers are also requested for contributions on the subject of occupational science, which puts our members in contact with occupational scientists from other countries and continents.
