The BMDW-Portfolio

The goal of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (BMDW) is to further enhance the positive development of the Austrian business location, to actively take advantage of the opportunities offered by the digitalisation of business and society and to strengthen entrepreneurship. The tasks of the Ministry are performed by various Centres and Directorates General with differing priorities.

The Ministry:


The competitiveness of Austrian companies, and consequently their employment potential, is a key issue both in Austria and the whole of Europe. It is largely dependent on the quality of activities in the fields of research, technological development and innovation. The BMDW therefore considers it important to promote investment in research, development and innovation and to create appropriate conditions for strengthening Austrian companies (particularly small and medium-sized enterprises).
