Interim evaluation of the strategic economy and research program of Upper Austria

The scheduled evaluation refers to the strategic economy and research programme "Innovative OÖ 2020", the orientation of its content, calibration and implementation, as well as to how it is rooted and perceived within the innovation and support scheme. It does not, however, refer to individual support instruments and their evaluation. In addition to the content orientation (goals, topics, instruments) that is relevant for the implementation, the evaluation also focuses on government and monitoring. We examine if the approach taken so far has been implemented successfully and whether adoptions in the concept and future implementation are necessary. The evaluation will document the main results but serves as a learning tool rather than as an external audit.
