Current Research Projects

This study will analyze the economic prerequisites and effects of the mobility transition in the Austrian railroad sector and the automotive supply industry, with a particular focus on the employment effects of this transformation. Through a combination of expert interviews and economic input-output analyses, we will examine how the existing strengths in the transport industry in Austria can be further developed and made fit for the future in order to meet the challenges of the mobility transition and at the same time create sufficient jobs.
The results of this study will help to make a well-founded contribution to the discussion on the design of a sustainable mobility strategy in Austria.

Competition and Competitivity plays an important political role today and serves as a reference point for human action in many areas. Against this background, the transdisciplinary research project SPACE investigates how the economic logic of competition emerged historically in academic discourse and has found its way into political and public debates, laws and ultimately our daily lives. It uses an innovative mix of economics, sociology, and ethnology methods, combining academic abstraction with everyday applicability of the results.
