The IÖB is an initiative of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs and the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation, and Technology. The goal is to connect innovation-friendly public clients and innovative companies digitally. Products or services are awarded the IÖB seal after an innovation dialogue, evaluation of the innovation degree, and applicability in the public sector by a jury of experts.
