The Institute of European Studies (IES) at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation have signed an agreement to create an Austria-California-Program to promote scholarly collaboration between faculty and graduate students with the goal of advancing research on both sides of the Atlantic on comparative U.S.-EU economic issues.

The Program is open to Faculty from the Social Sciences and Humanities at all University of California (UC) Campuses and all Austrian Universities. The Austria-Berkeley Program, administered through IES and the Marshall Plan Foundation, centers on three activities: a program of short-term visits (up to € 5.000/visit), a collaborative research competition (up to EUR 10.000/project), and research conferences.
