Useful Information



Our collaboration with the UNODC is unique and we are proud to be contributing to the Education for Justice (E4J) Initiative. The UNODC is located in Vienna, on the premises of the Vienna International Centre (VIC).

VIC’s impressive modern setting has been home to numerous international organisations since 23 August 1979. At the invitation of the Government of Austria, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) established their headquarters in Vienna in 1957 and 1967, respectively. In the 1970s, the Government provided a permanent residence for those two organisations: the Vienna International Centre (VIC). The VIC complex, which covers an area of 180,000 m², has extraterritorial status.  The VIC comprises about 4,500 offices and 9 conference rooms and accommodates about 3,600 international civil servants from more than 100 countries. 

All participants of the Winter School will go through a security registration process and will be provided a badge to enter the VIC for the entire duration of the programme.

There is a large cafeteria on the premises of Vienna International Center (VIC). The menu is different every day and offers a wide range of international hot and cold foods.

There are also vending machines on the ground floor for drinks and snacks.
