Abstract or Table of Contents

The topic of this paper is to provide an empirical account of the state and development of further learning in Austria, as compared to the European discussion. The three aspects of financing, public support, and participation are observed and discussed on the background of the existing conceptual hegemony of the market approach. Pros and cons concerning this approach are given, based on the observations.
Support mechanisms are observed, firstly based on a population survey, and secondly including a more in-depth analysis of individual support instruments (training accounts, etc.). Finally participation structures are analysed more deeply, based on a population survey, due to the effects of background variables.
