Territorial Employment Pacts in Austria
Thanks to the wide range of measures of the
Austrian TEPs, the objectives of the European Social
Fund (ESF) may be implemented successfully in the Structural Fund period
2007-2013. In the framework of the Operational Programme “Employment” for Austria, the
TEPs engage in manifold regional labour market policy activities, with support being
granted to them under Priority 5. Under Priority 3b, they develop targeted
measures for employment integration of those furthest away from the labour
market. Serving as a model of good governance in Austria in both fields of action,
the TEPs are the key to improving the labour market situation in the regions.

"Since its inception, the Territorial Employment Pacts have contributed effectively to the development of the regional labour market policy."
