Vorarlberg municipalities and to develop suitable strategies for
the future of inter-municipal cooperation in Vorarlberg.
The study starts with an analysis of the current situation of inter-municipal cooperation in Vorarlberg, based on existing materials and a large number of interviews.
The main purpose of the project is to demonstrate the possibilities of cooperation in selected, resource-intensive areas. The cooperation model is developed on the basis of specific regions and an implementation strategy for the entire federal state is developed on the basis of these findings. Areas examined are social planning (Walgau region), financial administration (Stand Montafon) and IT (Vorderland and subregion Am Kumma).
