Central bank will cancel Wifo, IHS and WIIW from 2023 fixed financing – companies

They will have to dress warmly, the new heads of the Economic Research Institute (Wifo; headed by Gabriel Felbermayr) and Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS; in future headed by Lars Feld) – and things are getting tighter for the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (WIIW). The Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB), which alongside the Ministry of Finance has been the institute’s second largest donor since 1986, is radically changing its funding regime. This was decided by the Board of Directors under Robert Holzmann and the General Council, the OeNB’s supervisory body, will approve it at its meeting this Thursday.
