The report provides an overview and analysis of the state of digitalisation in Austria. The findings show that the digitalisation performance of the Austrian economy is mixed. The overall digitalisation performance of Austria is marked by good performance in the manufacturing industries and weaknesses in the service sector compared to the innovation leader countries. The diffusion gap goes hand in hand with low adoption rates in microenterprises and SMEs and is reinforced by modest industrial dynamics in Austria. Reform needs arise regarding the promotion of ICT skills and competences of the workforce. The policy framework is currently in a phase of reorganisation.
