Erich Striessnig receives Fulbright-Award

Erich Striessnig, Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital, receives Fulbright-Botstiber Visiting Professorship at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado to study the sociodemographic characteristics of climate change.
