Please join us in celebrating the 80th birthday of Professor Haim Harari, one of the founding fathers of IST Austria.
Professor Harari’s achievements in developing the idea of IST Austria into a flourishing research institute can hardly be overstated. He became involved early in the founding period and took on a leading role in setting up all aspects of its organization and recruitment. Today, IST Austria is among the top places for research not just in Europe, but worldwide, not least due to Professor Harari’s efforts and vision.
