This article describes the bases of law and practice of transborder and interregional co-operation of the Austrian länder, as well as the collaboration of the länder in Austrian European policy. One special particularity is the co-financing of the länder (about 18,3%) and of the municipalities (about 20,6%) of the quota that Austria pays as a member of the European Union. In this text, the author describes the important requirements of the länder in the Intergovernmental Conferences of 1996 and 2000, as well as the legal organisation of the Austrian Republic. The Treaty of Nice indicates that on the issue of the petition for a distribution of responsibilities, the conference concluded successfully as a result of the interregional lobby of the strong regions (Petition of the Austrian länder - 1996).
