International healthcare challenges such as COVID-19 or hMPXV teach us that we rely on collaborative approaches to tackle the issues we will face in the future on both sides of the Atlantic. Fulbright Austria is dedicated to knowledge transfer and cooperation and to strengthening the bonds that unite the US and Austria. With the support of our institutional partners and cooperating agencies in both countries, we are in a position to offer 27 hyphenated awards for US scholars and students—and now, 28. In 2022, we took the next bold step in our journey and concluded a new partnership agreement with Paracelsus Medical University (PMU), thereby establishing the second Fulbright visiting-professor opportunity at a medical university in Austria.
