ÖIR is owned by the association ” the Austrian Institute for Spatial Planning”, which was founded in 1957. Its history is closely linked to the development of spatial planning in Austria.
The founding members of the association were originally the Republic of Austria, several Austrian federal states as well as the Austrian social partners.
At the end of the 1990s, the public sector withdrew completely from the association. Today, the employees of ÖIR are members of the association and thus the owners of the company. We are very proud of this employee-owned status and are fully committed to seeing it flourish.
