ibw conducts research and development at the interfaces between education, business and qualifications. At the heart of all ibw projects are application-oriented topics with relevance for the economy as well as issues to be treated on an interdisciplinary basis. ibw was founded in 1975 by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO) and the Federation of Austrian Industry (IV).

Apart from these two provider institutions and their sub-organisations, ibw's major project partners and clients include federal ministries, the Public Employment Service Austria (AMS), regional governments and individual companies.

On an international level, the EU and OECD use ibw's services either directly or within the framework of their programmes. ibw represents Austria in the ReferNet network, which was established by the EU's Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop).

Our Research Department draws up reports and analyses at the interface between education, business and qualifications aiming on topics like apprenticeship training, school education, universities and universities for applied sciences, lifelong learning, labour-market relevance, VET and Europe.

Our Development Department creates products and services for companies, social partners, sector associations, apprentices and schools focusing on topics concerning career guidance, apprenticeship training, competitions and events, VET and Europe and a project that connects pupils to economic issues (AWS – Arbeitsgemeinschaft Wirtschaft und Schule).
