Endogenous regional growth: With the view that winning “external” investors for structurally weak industrial regions can make companies too dependent on multinational corporations, endogenous development strategies have gained importance in Austria in the past decade. This approach follows a policy of transferring responsibility and options for action to the affected regions themselves.

Small and medium-sized companies, companies in problem zones with high structural unemployment and low economic performance and companies with special importance on the labour market and in regional politics are given preference. Local labour market service offices in areas with recessive industrial development have in part carried out special labour market projects, placing special emphasis on the temporary institution – “job foundation” – as a public-private partnership.
