Prof. Dr. Hermann Maurer founded this forum in 2009 to provide quality controlled information, rather than anonymous information whose origins are unknown, for schools and the interested public. His goal is to fight against doubtful information and fake news. “The Austria-Forum is proud to make selected IIASA Options magazines as well as selected stories from the IIASA Analyst and Alumni Newsletter available to its readership,” states Maurer.
