  • Description
  • Objectives

    This project builds a “Cen­ter of Excel­lence on Inter­na­tional Trade”. It pro­vides the appro­pri­ate infra­struc­ture and assis­tance for a research com­mu­nity in Inter­na­tional Trade. Thus we can achieve a sus­tain­able coor­di­na­tion among dif­fer­ent research projects, research insti­tutes and other activ­i­ties in the broad field of eco­nom­ics of Inter­na­tional Trade (FIW Ger­man abbre­vi­a­tion). This project will also cre­ate a net­work of experts and asure the inte­gra­tion of inter­na­tional projects.

    The Cen­ter of Excel­lence ful­fills the fol­low­ing tasks:

    • Devel­ops a research pro­gram which assists exter­nal polit­i­cal deci­sions and activ­i­ties con­cern­ing the Euro­pean Union and other multi­na­tional organ­i­sa­tions in a sus­tain­able fashion.
    • Pro­vides access to rel­e­vant data­bases in an easy and trans­par­ent way.
    • Encour­ages and enhances the devel­op­ment of know-​how with regard to for­eign eco­nomic affairs in Austria.

    This new Cen­ter of Excel­lence will be an impor­tant source of infor­ma­tion for the research com­mu­nity in Aus­tria, the Aus­trian gov­ern­ment with regard to for­eign affairs as well as the social part­ner­ship. It col­lects and increases the knowl­edge of the given research insti­tutes and pro­vides it to the pub­lic in a user friendly manner.

    Col­lab­o­rat­ing Institutes

    Three eco­nomic research and sta­tis­ti­cal insti­tutes located in Vienna col­lab­o­rate to form the FIW-​Project (Research Project on Inter­na­tional Trade). These insti­tutes are the Aus­trian Insti­tute of Eco­nomic Research (WIFO), the Vienna Insti­tute for Inter­na­tional Eco­nomic Stud­ies (wiiw) and the Com­put­ing Cen­tre for Eco­nom­ics and Social Sci­ences (WSR). Together they form a team the achieve the objec­tives of this project.
