Joint Evaluation of the Operational Programme "Employment in Austria 2014-2020" of the European Social Funds (ESF)

In contrast to former periods in Austria there is one single ESF programme for 2014-2020, whereby the only transition region, Burgenland, is integrated as a priority axis. The joint evaluation by WIFO, IHS and L&R Social Research comprises each priority, i.e., in-plant measures for equal opportunities of men and women and for active ageing, activities for more inclusion and against poverty, and educational measures. The priority axis "Burgenland" and the horizontal objectives, gender mainstreaming, disability meanstreaming and accessibility, are investigated separately. The implementation report will be delivered in 2019, the report focussing on impact and effectiveness in 2022.
