VISTA: The gateway to science

VISTA IST Austria Visitor Center

If there is one lesson from the Corona crisis, it is this: We need more knowledge about science. The issues facing society, politics and business are pressing and understandable: What is science good for? What does it achieve? How does it work? And how long does it take to produce results?

Scientists can and must provide the answers to these questions. This is why we at Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) are planning VISTA, a knowledge and visitor center to communicate our excellent basic research to a broad audience. The spectacular architecture invites inquisitive people of all ages to embark on a voyage of discovery in special hands-on laboratories, seminar rooms and exhibitions.

You can support us here. We would be pleased to inform you about your possibilities to participate in the creation of our gateway to science.
