The Luso-Austrian Summer Course was held again for the twenty-second time since 2001. This year, the course took place in Payerbach, Austria, and for two weeks, ten Austrian students and ten Portuguese students had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the language, history, and culture of both countries. The students who took part in the 2024 edition are automatically selected for the next edition, in 2025, which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal.

The participants benefited from a scholarship from the 'Österreichisches Bundesministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Forschung' (Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science, and Research), which covered all transportation and accommodation expenses (full board).
