A consortium of Austrian Ministries and the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, led by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF), commissioned Technopolis to perform an impact analysis of EU research initiatives on the Austrian research and innovation system as well as an evaluation of the Austrian support structures for the 7th European Framework Programme (FP7) and EUREKA. The first part of the study identified the effects of European research initiatives on the Austrian research and innovation system, while the second part of the evaluation examined the support delivered to Austrian R&D performers by the Department for European and International Programmes (EIP) of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) from 2007 to 2010.
The study produced recommendations about improving the quality and relevance of the activities of FFG -EIP (and the Austrian support system as a whole) and how to influence future EU initiatives for RTDI. It also provided input into the development of the Austrian position in pending revisions to European RTDI initiatives, in particular the transition from FP7 to FP8.
