The 2nd Austrian-Slovak Science Day took place on December 6 in Bratislava. This was an opportunity for Kakanien revisited to be presented to a broader Slovakian science community. However, the main agenda of the Science Day stood in the light of the preparation of co-operation within the 7th framework programme of the European Commission for research, technological development and demonstration activities.

The Science day was organized by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Culture and the Austrian Science and Research Liaison Office in Bratislava. Beside the FP7 preparations in Austria and Slovakia, some of the event objectives were also research and development support, presentation of "good practice" co-operation as well as networking of researchers.

The conference was organized in two parts, the first part consisting of two plenary sessions and the second part giving an opportunity to the conference guests to choose between three parallel workshops.

The most interesting part of both plenary sessions for young researchers (who were actually the majority of the guests) were certainly the speeches of the representatives of the Austrian Science Fund and of the Slovak Research and Development Support Agency presenting ways of applying for subsidies and other research funding opportunities.

Within the Humanities and Social Sciences Workhop I could present the concept of Kakanien revisited pointing out our principle of open access to scientific information combined with a scientific approach (peer review) that enables us to publish a wide range of papers based on a high quality scientific research. The interest of the Slovakian side in our platform was fairly big offering a possibility of future co-operations and networking.
