Spezialforschungsbereich "International Tax Coordination"
In October 2003, a Special Research Program "International Tax Coordination" (SFB ITC) was established by the Austrian Science Fund and was provided with funds of EUR 1.7 million. Researchers from tax law, social security law, constitutional law, business administration, public finance, as well as economists and historians, are working together closely on multi-disciplinary projects. The SFB deals with a broad range of issues in tax coordination, such as assignment of taxing rights, international income tax harmonization, etc. In 2007, the Austrian Science Fund, after having conducted an extensive and international evaluation procedure, decided to extend the SFB for the next funding period (until 2010) and provided an additional EUR 1.8 million for research activities.
