The Centers for Austrian and Central European Studies, founded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Sciences and Research since the 1970s play an important role for the Austrian and international scientific community. Their tasks are to promote studies on Austrian and Central Europe in their host nations as well as to offer Austrian and Central European students the opportunity to conduct research abroad and to get in touch with the local scientific community. This anthology contains reports on the activities of the Centers in the Academic Year 2013/2014 and papers of their most promising PhD-students.
