In the heart of Central Europe

The VIENNA REGION is located in the centre of a market of more than 500 million consumers. Its location in direct proximity to CEE and contacts established over generations make the VIENNA REGION the economic and cultural hub between the old and new members of the EU.

The VIENNA REGION is also one of the most dynamic regions of Austria. The area covering 23,500 square metres with 3.8 million inhabitants is responsible for about 45% of Austria's GDP. Here, there are the most start-ups and business relocations of any region in Austria by far.

Pole Position for Central and Eastern Europe

It is a fact that Austria has been a role model in exploiting the business opportunities arising from EU enlargement.

The biggest beneficiary of this move eastwards has been the VIENNA REGION - in the pole position and centre of a market with close to 500 million people.

One reason is the VIENNA REGION's tradition of doing business in CEE, as well as its mental proximity to its neighbours.

Air Travel Hub VIENNA REGION: A home to good connections: The most important gateway to Central and Eastern Europe is located in the VIENNA REGION - Vienna Airport, which links you to 40 CEE destinations. That is more than any other airport in the world - even more than Frankfurt.

    Focus on High Tech

    Innovation is the top priority: The Vienna Region is home to a large number of operations developing life sciences, ICT, automotive, renewable energies and environmental technologies. The prevalence of high-tech in the region is detailed by its incubator boom, and by the setting up of new research centres and of other subsidiaries by many leading global business players.

    The regions's financial incentives, networks and state of the art-technology hubs fostering the fruitful interaction of global players and start-ups, of research and educational facilities ensure the expeditious and effective transfer of technologies between the business and scientific communities.

          International meeting point: The tradition of Vienna as a major conference site dates back to the year 1815, when the city hosted the peace talks following the Napoleonic Wars ("Congress of Vienna").

          Since then, Vienna has established itself as a prime international conference location and ranks among favoured destinations in the world. Major international organisations, such as the UN, UNIDO, IAEO or OPEC are based in the city.

              Funding. Subsidies. Tax advantages

              Austria and the VIENNA REGION have established an effective promotion system for entrepreneurs with promising ideas: direct grants and other measures are assisting companies to make money by exploiting good ideas.

              With a standard corporation tax rate of 25%, Austria's rates are low compared with the rest of Europe. Investors also profit from the new group relief arrangements (ongoing set-off of profits/losses of the entire company group by simple consolidation).
