Project: EQUAL Development Partnership 'The third sector in Vienna'
The Third Sector in Vienna as a result of its high innovation dynamics holds a yet barely explored employment potential which is however limited in its development through organisational and structural prob-lems. The project therefore is devoted to the analysis and further de-velopment of all economic- and employment areas that can be coun-ted to the Third Sector in the City of Vienna. It is about a broad spectrum of non-commercial and non-profit activities as far as they are relevant for employment. Through the development partnership ‘Third Sec-tor Vienna’ specific deficiency areas in this employment area have been identified, strategies for their elimination have been deve-loped and exemplary examples of implementation have been arranged.
