Monitoring of Austria's Efforts Within the Europe 2020 Strategy. Update 2014-15

Following the European Commission's guidelines, WIFO undertakes a monitoring of the implementation of the Austrian National Reform Programme within the framework of the Europe 2020 growth strategy. The main components will be the development of normative target corridors to assess progress in reaching the five Europe 2020 headline goals, the development of a structured analysis for the policy measures, which will be assessed following identical criteria, and a more thorough evaluation of selected policy measures, in particular as regards those targeted at addressing country-specific recommendations. The ultimate objective of the project is to pinpoint Austria's position on its way towards meeting the Europe 2020 goals and to assess whether the policies implemented may in principle be sufficient to reach the goals and to address the country-specific recommendations in a satisfactory way.
