In order to provide financial resources for the construction and operation of the College of Social and Economic Sciences in Linz, federal law of July 5, 1962, BGBl. No. 189 officially authorized the “Linz University Funds” as a corporate body of public law.

Since then, activities and scientific pursuits have been financed not only by the provincial government of Upper Austria, but also by research contributions made by local companies as well as communities located throughout Upper Austria.
