Each year, The George C. Marshall Visit to Austria Program brings a group of decision makers from the United States to Austria, with the goal to further improve mutual understanding and to highlight Austrian innovations in industry and technology. The program was first established by the Austrian Government in 2007 in recognition of the assistance Austria received from the United States after World War II. The evening at Amerika Haus offered an opportunity to meet the participants in this year’s program and discuss “The Role of Advanced Materials in the Industry” from both a U.S. and an Austrian perspective.
