Private Investment in Austrian Regions

  • Project lead:
  • Peter Mayerhofer

Given a rather low investment intensity in Austra in the aftermath of the recession 2008-09 our study contributes to the hitherto weak data base on regional capital formation in Austria. We identify differences in investment evolutions and their structural characteristics at the level of the Austrian Länder and provide information about the quantities of investment grants at the regional level. Thereby we provide information for a place-based economic policy that explicitely allows for the regional context when supporting firm investment.
