The OEBG has been contracted by government agencies, ministries etc. to work out guidelines for soil scientific enquiries in Austria, in recognition of the Society’s competence as a scientific forum. The OEBG is a nationwide organisation, which is not dependent on a person or group of persons, and is therefore in a position to thoroughly consider and integrate diverse opinions.

The OEBG also provides information about the current state of soil scientific research in Austria and abroad. Due to well-established contacts with soil scientists and soil science societies in many countries, the OEBG is able to provide its members with information about the most recent developments in the field of soil science.

This not only contributes to a broadening of the current soil scientific knowledge, but also provides the opportunity for government officials to procure advanced, cross-departmental training. The Society also co-operates in the organisation of cross-national excursions and meetings.
