AUTNES has the following tasks:

  • to make a contribution towards a better understanding of how Austrian democracy works
  • to provide high-quality data for the public and the scientific community
  • to secure and expand cooperation with the international community of electoral researchers
  • to promote and support young scientists and consolidate Austrian academic electoral research.

ACIER - Cooperative Infrastructure for Electoral Research is conducting a national election study for the Austrian National Election 2017. ACIER is a reasearch cooperation between the University of Vienna, the University of Salzburg and the University of Innsbruck.
