ÖIR is one of the leading European Regional Planning Development Institutes. The institute has intensely been engaged in studies and dissemination activities related to RTDI and regional development and has been dealing with analysis and policy design for regional development measures on local, regional and national level. OIR has extensive working experience for the European Commission, dealing with regional and spatial development issues and project management at international level. European urban development and regional policy has been a major field many years, in the way of consultant work to the federal and regional governments and also directly for the Commission. European spatial development has become an issue of increasing significance in the Institute’s work (ESPON, INTERREG IIIB CADSES, 6th framework programme).
Sustainability as theme in urban and regional development has been a field of research and consulting activities ever since the founding of the institute.
