The Austrian Ornithological Centre (AOC) has its headquarters at the Konrad Lorenz Institute of Ethology of the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna.  It is a scientific institution for the research of all biological and ecological aspects of birds.  It serves as ornithological documentation centre and is meant to bundle all bird research in Austria.  When it was founded in 2015 Austria became the last European country to establish such an ornithological centre.  

The AOC´s tasks include basic research on the lives of wild birds, causal research regarding threats to our birdlife, monitoring of breeding and migratory bird populations and the establishment and operation of a national bird ringing centre 1.
