Research priorities and international orientation

Focus on relevant research topics and challenges

WIFO organises its research in five Research Groups structured according to economic subdisciplines. In addition, they work across disciplines in order to utilise WIFO's broad economic know-how for research on relevant topics and challenges.

International orientation

In an internationalised economy, viable economic policy solutions can only be worked out by taking into account the global framework conditions and taking into account international experience and expertise, for example by benchmarking international best practice. Austria's economic policy thus also benefits from WIFO's international orientation. WIFO is a member of numerous international scientific networks and regularly participates in tenders of the European Research Framework Programmes.
