Matthias Firgo, Kathrin Hranyai, Gerhard Schwarz, Anna Strauss, Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) für Oberösterreich. Machbarkeitsstudie

Projektberichte (in Arbeit), März 2016
Der Beirat des IT-Clusters Oberösterreich empfiehlt die Erstellung eines Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) für Oberösterreich. Die vorliegende Machbarkeitsstudie gibt dazu als erster Schritt eine Kostenschätzung für unterschiedliche Versionen eines solchen Index ab. Daraus geht hervor, in welcher Bandbreite die Kosten der Ersterhebung sowie jährlicher Folgeerhebungen liegen würden.

Michael Böheim, Anna Strauss, Teresa Weiss (WIFO), Moving Towards a New Growth Model – Policy Options. WWWforEurope Deliverable No. 10

WWWforEurope: Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe, Oktober 2015, 186 Seiten,
The report summarises the main contents that were presented at the 2nd WWWforEurope Feedback Conference (6 May 2015, Vienna). After 38 months of extensive work on essential questions for Europe's future with a particular focus on laying the analytical basis for a socio-ecological transition the conference marked the end of the second phase, the policy formulation phase, of the project, as well as the beginning of the third phase, the synthesis phase. Moreover, it was dedicated to collect impulses for the project's synthesis report, which represents the main output at the end of the project. For this purpose, external experts and stakeholder representatives from European and international institutions, social partners, NGOs and academia joined the conference and had the possibility to directly give feedback to outputs of the project. A collection of written statements provided by the stakeholders reflect how different research groups, partners and stakeholders approach the core issues of the project. Beside contributions of Karl Aiginger (project coordinator) and Catherine Mann (OECD), the report further includes five Area Chapters representing the results of the work of the five WWWforEurope Research Areas.

Friesenbichler, Alexandros Charos, Kathrin Hranyai, Peter Reschenhofer, Anna Strauss, Sebastian Unterlass, Johanna Vogel, Agnes Kügler, Stefan Weingärtner, The Relationship Between Export and Technological Specialisation Profiles Across EU Countries and Regions and the Identification of Development Potentials

Monographien, August 2015, 183 Seiten
The aim of this study is to analyse the development of new industrial specialisations and the process of export diversification both at the country and the regional level for the EU countries over time. It examines to what extent these processes show path dependent properties, whether persistent development trajectories can be shifted in order to avoid structural traps and what role related and unrelated diversification play for the economic performance of regions. Overall, the results of this report and its policy implications underscore that Smart Specialisation policies require a smooth coordination of a larger set of diverse policy measures that take into account both the local context and all the involved players rather than a perfect setup of single policies. In particular, the educational system, specialisation patterns in research and innovation, and foreign direct investments play a key role in diversification processes and should be a constitutive element of Smart Specialisation policies.

Klaus S. Friesenbichler, Anna Strauss, Public-Private-Partnerships und der Breitbandausbau in Österreich

Projektberichte (in Arbeit), April 2015
IKT- und Breitband-Politik gelten als wichtige Komponenten innovationsbasierter Wachstumsstrategien wie etwa "Europa 2020". Diese Arbeit diskutiert die Anwendbarkeit von Public-Private-Partnership-Modellen (PPP) im Bereich des Next Generation Access (NGA) in Österreich, insbesondere für den ländlichen Raum, wo der weitere Netzausbau aufgrund der mangelnden Rentabilität schleppend erwartet verlaufen dürfte.

Kathrin Hranyai, Jürgen Janger, Anna Strauss, Forschungsquotenziele 2020

Monographien, November 2013, 43 Seiten
Die österreichische Bundesregierung hat im Rahmen der Strategie "Europa 2020" Forschungsquotenziele gesetzt: Die Forschungs- und Entwicklungsquote soll bis 2020 auf 3,76% des BIP gesteigert werden bei einem Finanzierungsanteil des öffentlichen Sektors von einem Drittel. Zusätzlich soll die Grundlagenforschungsquote auf 0,94% des BIP angehoben werden. Diese Studie berechnet einen idealtypischen Finanzierungs- und Ausgabenpfad, der die Erreichung dieser Ziele bis 2020 ermöglichen würde. Die für die Zielerreichung notwendige Finanzierung wird der vergangenen und vom Bundeshaushalt vorgegebenen künftigen Entwicklung der tatsächlichen F&E-Finanzierung gegenübergestellt. Aus dem Vergleich ergibt sich eine Finanzierungslücke zur Erreichung der Forschungsquotenziele.

Jürgen Janger, Anna Strauss (WIFO), David Campbell (UNI-KLU), Academic Careers: A Cross-country Perspective. WWWforEurope Working Paper No. 37

WWWforEurope: Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe, August 2013, 69 Seiten,
Asymmetric international mobility of highly talented scientists is well documented. We try contributing to the explanation of this phenomenon, looking at the "competitiveness" of higher education systems in terms of being able to attract talented scientists in their field. We characterise countries' capability to offer attractive entry positions into academic careers using the results of a large scale experiment on the determinants of job choice in academia. Examined areas refer to the level of salaries, quality of life, PhD studies, career perspectives, research organisation, balance between teaching and research, funding and probability of working with high quality peers. Our results indicate that overall, the US research universities offer the most attractive jobs for early stage researchers, consistent with the asymmetric flow of talented scientists to the USA. Behind the USA is a group of well performing European countries, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Austria and Germany are next, closely followed by France, which in turn is followed by Italy. Spain and Poland are, according to our results, least able to offer attractive entry positions to an academic career.

Fabian Unterlass, Andreas Reinstaller, Peter Huber, Jürgen Janger, Kathrin Hranyai, Anna Strauss, Isabel Stadler, MORE2. Remuneration Cross-Country Report (WP4) – Support for Continued Data Collection and Analysis Concerning Mobility Patterns and Career Paths of Researchers

This study provides a detailed description and analysis of the remuneration of researchers in 47 countries. To complement the report's comparative analysis, a set of country profiles was also compiled for each of the EU 27 countries (except Slovakia and Malta), 13 other European countries, as well as the USA, Canada, Japan, China, South Korea, Singapore, Australia, Brazil, and Russia. Information was compiled by an extensive network of national experts as well as by an analysis which built upon these country profiles. Monetary and non-monetary components of researcher remunerations are investigated as well as important aspects of employment conditions that influence the evaluation of a research position by researchers themselves.
