Dual Career Service at Styria's five universities

Dual Career Service Steiermark

In June 2010, the five universities in Styria were the first in Austria to sign a letter of intent regarding dual career services. Their goal has been and is to cooperate in furthering dual careers of professors, young researchers, artists and managers. At the same time, they seek to create and most beneficially use synergies. The Styrian university network also aims at reaching the following goals:

  • improving the compatibility of family, relationships and career,
  • highlighting the universities as attractive employers in the region,
  • providing mutual assistance in creating and extending the DCS network and
  • developing a network of partners within and outside the universities.
