Coordination Unit of the Territorial Employment Pacts

Coordination Unit of the Territorial Employment Pacts (TEPs) in Austria

The federal Coordination Unit of the Territorial Employment Pacts (Kooo for short), established under the direction of the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection at the Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI), serves to support and accompany, up until the end of 2013, the various projects carried out by the Austrian Employment Pacts and their partner institutions as well as to cultivate, implement and further develop partnerships.

The activities of the Coordination Unit are funded within the framework of the Austrian Operational Programme "Employment" 2007-2013 (ESF).
From the very beginning, when national coordination activities were initiated in 1999, Kooo has regarded its efforts as a service to the pacts. In the evaluation of Objective 3 / Priority 6, the pacts rate cooperation with Kooo as being very helpful. Specifically, the aid provided by Kooo is appraised 'as a supporting factor in achieving objectives'.
Kooo ensures the exchange of information among all of the institutions involved, advises and assists the TEPs and is responsible for joint activities (see also Kooo_folder_en_2005 as download).
