Project Initiative
In the past 48 years, OISTAT has grown from its European roots expanding to include professionals from all continents. It is an international organization with a migrating headquarters. The challenges and the rewards of these migrations benefit the greater global cultural network.
OISTAT recognizes the organizational challenges of rebranding, rejuvenation, and enabling economic growth to support its significant and large international activities. This is the first time OISTAT invites young leaders into its core development strategy and opens up to implement the ideas of young leaders.
