Austria’s moving forwards…

Hi,

I came across this website with ideas from Austria in terms of how they’re moving towards a sustainable future, the economic opportunities and environmental benefits, lifestyle benefits.

It makes good reading.

This page, for example, talks about Technologies for Sustainable Development  http://www.bmvit.gv.at/en/innovation/sustainable.html.

It also describes how and why Austria’s five year research and technology programme aims to generate:

  • New economic opportunities
  • Better use of natural resources
  • Consolidation of Austria’s position in the field of technology
  • Positive effects on the economy and employment

through (amongst other things):

  • Strengthening competence in research and development
  • Guiding principles of sustainability
  • Orientation towards benefit and need
  • Efficient use of resources
  • Use of renewable resources
  • Multiple use and recycling
  • Securing employment, income and quality of life.
