Austrian Hub

The Austrian Hub is chaired by Susanne Augenhofer, Walter Doralt and Christian Koller. Its launch 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 Deputy-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 joining ELI, one becomes a member of the Hub of their country of residence or seat, provided no objections are raised. You can find the list of Individual Members by country of residence here.
