Integrating Sustainable Development and Innovation Policy in Austria

This chapter discusses links between sustainable development and innovation policy in Austria. It looks at the way in which the two policy areas interact and the kind of mechanisms that facilitate communication between them. Following an overview of sustainability policy and the actors involved in its implementation, the chapter focuses on two case studies that play an important role in policy co-ordination between the two areas, based on an assessment of key documents and a series of interviews with policy makers and experts.
