Dur­ing his four month stay Striess­nig will com­bine the mul­ti-di­men­sional co­hort-­com­pon­ent model developed by II­ASA in col­lab­or­a­tion with the Wit­tgen­stein Centre with the NCAR model, by ad­ding age-­struc­ture to the spa­tial di­men­sion of pop­u­la­tion het­ero­gen­eity.

The pur­pose of the Ful­bright-Bot­st­iber Award in Aus­tri­an-Amer­ican Stud­ies in the United States is to pro­mote the un­der­stand­ing of the his­tor­ical re­la­tion­ship between Aus­tria and the United States. In close col­lab­or­a­tion with col­leagues at NCAR, Striess­nig will start with a U.S. case study and ap­ply his model to Aus­tria in a next step.
