One of the most important reasons for me to move to Vienna six years ago was my association of the city with the idea of a vibrant scientific community. Coming here with this goal made it easy for me to find exactly this. The supply of diverse, high-quality and often completely free of charge scientific events and other possibilities in Vienna is (close to) never-ending. This subjective experience of mine seems to be the case, as I invested quite some time looking at various research and education institutions and what they offer. I repeatedly experienced, that even people born in Vienna, have never heard or been to (for example) one of the lectures at IST Austria or don't know what IIASA is about. Therefore I will curate a list here of various options and how you can keep up-to-date with current science and science events (like signing up for newsletters) in the beautiful city of Vienna in Austria.
UNIVERSITIES and their events
I recommend going through the events in the beginning of the new semesters and writing into your calendar what is interesting or relevant to you.
IIASA International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis: Events at IIASAThe International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis is a scientific research institute located in Laxenburg, near Vienna, Austria.Founded in 1972, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) conducts policy-oriented research into problems of a global nature that are too large or too complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline.
VHS Wien offers a "science card" to get a very generous price to various science presentations at their locations, these are more on the introduction level, but nevertheless often very fun and enlightening
