1. Austria is part of the EU! We joined it (together with Finnland and
Sweden) in 1995 (Jan., 1st).
2. Some time ago, we (AVL List in Graz/Austria) were looking for a TW from
England or the United States to join our engine test bed documentation team
- the guy will start this Friday (March, 1st).
So there is a need for English-speaking TWs in Austria, too - but I'm not
quite sure how much. I'll try to find out that during our next Austrian
tekom chapter meeting on March, 23rd and post it to the list.
