Monitoring of Austrian Research, Technology and Innovation Strategy 2020

The Austrian Government has formulated a strategy to improve research, technology and innovation activities by the year 2020. WIFO establishes a monitoring framework for the implementation of this project commissioned by the Austrian Council for Research and Technology. The Austrian Council is legally mandated to monitor the implementation of the strategy. WIFO develops a set of indicators which aims at tracing any improvements in research, technology and innovation activities. This project contributes to more efficient and effective innovation policies in Austria, as the monitoring of the implementation of the strategy not only sets incentives to implement the strategy, but also informs about the outcome of the strategy at an early stage.
