The working environment is changing rapidly due to globalisation and digitalisation. To face these trends, the AMS of Lower Austria organized a pilot project called “Entrepreneurship Lab” in collaboration with ÖSB Consulting and update Training. In this course 15 persons registered at the AMS will get help in developing business ideas, concretize and prepare to realize them in altogether 17 weeks. In 2017 there will be 2 groups of unemployed persons running through the programme. The AIT Centre for Innovation Systems & Policy has a team which evaluates this labour market policy and also gives regular impulses to change the project. Therefore the “Entepreneurship Lab” is designed as a policy experiment which gets improved steadily.
Key Words: Work 4.0, Policy Experiment
