A recent study carried out by Phillip Nell, professor at the Vienna University of Economic and Business, in collaboration with the researcher Jan Schmitt of the university’s Institute for International Business with the support of Erste Bank Foundation, now shows that the number of headquarters relocating in Austria between the years 2000 and 2017 was more than double the comparable number which left the country. A total of 45 firms either transferred the head office of the parent company (in ten cases) or a specific division (35) to Austria whereas 20 left the country. In particular, the years following the financial crisis showed a high level of mobility. 65 percent of the exodus (13 out of 20 firms) and 67 percent of the new headquarters projects (30 out of 45) took place during this period.

How Austria Shapes Its Future with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is certainly the most powerful new technology available today. This is probably the reason why the underlying discussion is frequently driven by fear. Hollywood has also contributed to this. Half-human, half-machine mutants resembling Frankenstein and Terminator are the spectres unleased by AI. However, as is often the case, Hollywood’s fantasy has little to do with reality.
