Austria is rated eleventh in the world in a recent country comparison carried out by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) together with the job exchange StepStone.at. In particular, Austria is considered to be an exciting place for highly qualified employees. In this case, the Alpine Republic is ranked among the top ten worldwide, and even placed eighth among specialized employees with PhDs in the fields of research, development and legal affairs.   

Vienna moved up four slots in the ranking compared to the 2014 study, and is now rated thirteenth, making it one of the most attractive cities for working abroad. Vienna lures highly qualified employees as well as company owners and specialized employees in production. Women give Vienna higher marks than men. They rate the Austrian metropolis as eleventh in the world compared to fourteenth for men. London is given the top rating, ahead of New York and Berlin.

The new research allowance in Germany – in competition with the Austrian research tax credit?

Companies carrying out research and development in Austria have the possibility to apply for research funding, namely the so-called research tax credit. In an international comparison, the Austrian research tax credit is a recipe for success and is designed to showcase and enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a research location. The successive increase in the research tax credit from the original level of three percent in 2002 to 14 percent at present has made a massive contribution to this success.
