Organization of Institute of Science and Technology Austria

The governance and management structures of IST Austria guarantee the freedom from political and commercial influences. IST Austria is headed by the President, who is appointed by the Board of Trustees. More than half of the Board of Trustees is made up of international scientists, the remainder comprises members appointed by the federal government and the government of Lower Austria. The President is further advised by the Scientific Board.
The first and recently reappointed President is Thomas A. Henzinger, a computer scientist and former professor of the University of California at Berkeley and the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. He is supported by Vice President Michael Sixt, who oversees the operation of the scientific service units. The administration of IST Austria is led by Managing Director Georg Schneider.
