ÖIR GmbH is fully owned by the association “Österreichisches Institut für Raumplanung” (“Austrian Institute for Regional Studies”) established in 1957. The history of the association is deeply intertwined with the development of spatial planning in Austria, as it counts the Republic of Austria, a number of Austrian federal states and social institutions as its founding partners. With the privatisation of the association towards the end of the 1990s the employees became members of the association, thus gaining ownership of the ÖIR GmbH.
