Call for Applications: Summer Universities in Vienna, Austria, by OeAD student housing

The summer universities Green.Building.Solutions. (GBS) and Alternative Economic and Monetary Systems (AEMS) are returning to Vienna in July and August 2023!

These academic summer programmes, organised by OeAD student housing in collaboration with leading universities, aim at students and professionals from architecture, planning and engineering (for GBS) as well as an interested audience from all backgrounds for the AEMS.

Both summer programmes last 3 weeks (fulltime) and will deal with sustainability – on the one hand by examining a futureproof construction and building sector, on the other hand by elaborating on alternative solutions at the overarching level of the economic and financial system.

Professionals and students are welcome to apply and to make a life-changing learning experience in a multi-cultural environment in the amazing city of Vienna, Austria.
