ABA is an association of biologists and biological practitioners.

Our goal is to represent the interests of members and to promote the biology for the benefit of society and its environment in Austria and the European Union in theory and practice.

We see ourselves as a communication forum for all biologists, teachers, whatever their professional orientation.
We provide and promote public relations and education within the meaning of our mission statement, including through publication of the online magazine bioskop.

We support activities in the nature and the environment, as well as for financial support of the health and welfare on personal, social and ecological level.
In the spirit of inter-professional interaction, the Executive Board is composed of representatives of as many different fields of biological professions.
