Innovative start-ups are central to economic dynamism and the mastering of societal challenges such as climate change – they
turn ideas into marketable products without having to consider the cannibalisation of existing products. At the same time,
the EU and Austria lag behind countries such as the USA in the presence and growth dynamics of such start-ups. More economic
research is needed to inform economic policies aiming at counteracting this trend. The literature emphasises the lack of holistic
approaches to start-up analysis. This research project has the opportunity to follow the start-ups of the Venture Capital
Fund of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria in real time and thereby obtain unique data.

Together with Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) and Joanneum Research Policies, WIFO calculates the economic impact of
FWF-funded basic research. In a first step, a survey, patent and publication data analyses as well as case studies are used
to trace different economic effects, such as registered inventions, company start-ups or the production of new measuring instruments.
In the second step, short-, medium- and long-term effects of the funded projects on productivity, value added and tax revenue

The Sustainable Careers for Researcher Empowerment (SECURE) project will develop coordination and support measures to create,
trial, implement, and mainstream a common Research Career Framework (RCF) that offers a suite of options to support organisations
in the recruitment, employment, training, development, progression, and mobility of researchers with the aim of improving
research careers and reducing career precarity. The RCF will recognise the research profession across sectors, provide a career
development and progression structure for research careers, recognise both research and transferable skills and competences,
facilitate intersectoral collaboration and mobility, and offer solutions to the precariousness of research careers in academia.
