Austrian Hub

The Austrian Hub launch featured a panel discussion on European legal integration

The launch of the Austrian Hub took place in Vienna on 4 September 2013 and featured many prominent panelists debating the current status of European legal integration. The discussions were moderated by Irmgard Griss (former President of the Austrian Supreme Court and former Speaker of the ELI Senate).

The keynote address was delivered by Franz Fischler (President of the European Forum Alpbach and a former EU Commissioner for Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries). From the host venue, Haus der Europäischen Union, the guests then proceeded to the beautiful courtyard and ceremonial chamber of the University of Vienna, where an official opening of the ELI General Assembly took place under the auspices of Rector Heinz W Engl.

Upon registration with the ELI, individuals become automatically members of the Hub in their country of residence, provided no objections are raised. You can find the list of members by country of residence here.
