For many years ARA Altstoff Recycling Austria AG has been supporting academic programs in the field of resource management and wast minimization. Now the ARA Best Study Award has been established for students of the MSc Program Environmental Technology and International Affairs (ETIA).
As Austria´s leading compliance scheme under the EU Packaging Directive, ARA is collecting, recycling and recovering more than 800.000 tons of packaging waste each year, thus saving 600.000 tons CO2 equivalents per year.
In June 2010, on the occasion of the second ETIA graduation the newly established ARA Best Study Award will be granted to the graduating student with the best academic performance during the whole ETIA program (two study years).
On March 26th, 2010 Dr. Christoph Scharff, CEO of ARA presented the new <media 26235 _blank pdf-link>ARA Best Study Award</media> to the students of the two current ETIA classes. They were happy to learn that the best student will be honoured with EUR 18.000.-, covering almost the entire tuition fee of the MSc ETIA program.
The awardee will be selected by a prize committee  (representatives of the Diplomatic Academy and the Vienna University of Technology) and announced at the graduation ceremony.
