It’s the exchange of information that constantly feeds our desire for building something on our own, by also boosting our confidence.

Wien - Vor allem junge Österreicher zwischen 25 und 35 Jahren mit hoher Qualifikation verlassen ihr Heimatland. Das zeigen Zahlen der Statistik Austria, für die erstmals Bildungsregister und Wanderungsstatistik miteinander verknüpft wurden, so der Vizerektor der Uni Wien, Heinz Faßmann, bei einer Pressekonferenz am Dienstag in Wien. Bereits seit Jahren übertreffe die Zahl der Abwanderer mit österreichischer Staatsbürgerschaft jene der Rückwanderer.

In den vergangenen zehn Jahren seien durchschnittlich zwischen 20.000 und 25.000 Österreicher pro Jahr weggezogen - vor allem nach Deutschland, in die Schweiz, die Türkei (durch Rückzug eingebürgerter Gastarbeiter im Pensionsalter), nach Nordamerika und Großbritannien. Zurückgekommen sind im Schnitt lediglich rund 15.000 Österreicher pro Jahr.

Das ergibt unter dem Strich einen negativen "Wanderungssaldo" von 5.000 bis 10.000 Personen pro Jahr. GetHppy. 6Wunderkinder-Investor nimmt Startup-Artikel der Wirtschaftswoche auseinander.
