Description Cooperation with all job market institutions lead-managed by the federal state, federal social service department and job market service (each with alternating chairmanship) + 14 partners (chamber for employees, Austrian chamber for economy, industrial alliance,...) to be able to work efficiently by close collaboration based on common objectives. The AMG (employment-market-aid-association) as an independent institution is responsible for the realisation.

It is considered to be a substantial improvement towards regional development.

General assessment of strength and weakness Strength: coordination yields in added value; efficiency of investments is much higher in the case of common interests compared to individual approaches.

Weakness: Individual interests are often hard and longsome to overcome; the instrument is not yet known by the general public; identical stakeholders have functions in more than one involved organisation; top down organisation is contradicting desired buttom up strategies!
