Durchführung einer Analyse zu volkswirtschaftlichen Aspekten von Infrastrukturinvestitionen

Client/Funding Institution

Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT)


The aim of the project is on the one hand to calculate a possible lack of investment for Austria and other EU member states in the area of strategic important infrastructure like for example street, rail or broadband internet connection. And on the other hand to develop a concrete suggestion for a “golden rule” for infrastructure investment on EU level. The project is based on actual research, is broadening it and puts a focus on the macroeconomic approach of infrastructure investments, whereas structural, cyclical and regional aspects of the topic will be treated.
