FFG thematic dossier on Austrian performance in H2020 Health available in English
The FFG (Austrian Research Promotion Agency) has published the English version of its “ERA Thematic Dossier” on Health research in Horizon 2020, and in particular on the Austrian performance related to Health research. The report analyses and evaluates this performance in detail, and puts it into a European and national context. Based on this detailed assessment, it also makes several recommendations for action.
A first version of this dossier was published in 2015 (in German). In this updated, 2nd version, not only data from the Horizon 2020 programme “Health, demographic change and wellbeing” as well as related programmes were taken into account, but also health-related projects from Pillar 1 “Excellent Science” were integrated and analysed. The dossier rates overall Austrian performance in this societal challenge as satisfactory and in line with previous framework programmes.
