Network of the Alps-Adriatic universities
The Alps-Adriatic Working Group was founded in Venice in 1978 , and in 1979 the then rector of the University of Graz , Anton Kolb , established the joint rectors' conference. The aim and purpose of the Rectors' Conference is the cooperation between universities and colleges and the exploitation of the possibilities of scientific and artistic cooperation.
In 1981 the Rectors' Conference drew up an “Agreement on their Working Methods” and established a scientific advisory board. Rectors' Conference and Scientific Advisory Board are still the main instruments of scientific cooperation within the working group. The Rectors' Conference generally meets once a year, and the Scientific Advisory Board meets at least twice a year.
The network currently includes 48 universities and colleges.
