When one thinks of Austria, one usually thinks of mountains, lakes, culture … of holidays. However, Austria is also a country with a highly developed industry, especially in the fields of machine and steel manufacturing, chemistry, automotive manufacturing, electrical engineering and electronics. Austria offers apprentices from other countries a variety of possibilities.
IFA supports young people and adults from all EU countries who would like to do a work placement or an experience exchange in Austria.
