|Available languages :|
For the 2007–13 period, Austria has been allocated €1.47 billion in total: €177 million under the Convergence1 Objective, €1.027 billion under the Regional Competitiveness and Employment Objective and €257 million under the European Territorial Cooperation Objective.
Austria has 11 regional programmes – nine financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and one by the European Social Fund (ESF), in addition to one ‘horizontal’ programme financed by the ESF covering all regions under the Regional Competitiveness and Employment Objective. With the exception of the Burgenland, all regions fall under the Regional Competitiveness and Employment Objective. The Burgenland is currently in a transitional phase between the two objectives: it is a so-called ‘Phasing-out Region’.
