Regional Analyses

Regions, business locations and countries have very different economic structures, development dynamics and specific framework conditions. The global division of labour and technological change can further intensify regional divergences. The Austrian Institute for SME Research investigates economic structures, trends and location conditions of regions, cities or even countries in Europe, derives development perspectives and options for action and offers support in the design of policy measures.
