Final report of Evaluation of Implementation of HORIZON 2020 and ERA in Austria published
The aim of this evaluation was to undertake a systematic general overview of the implementation of H2020 and ERA, as well as EUREKA, COSME and EEN in Austria, guided by the objectives of the assignment of the Austrian Government and the Austrian Research Promotion Agency.
The following meta questions formed the basis of the various individual questions in the evaluation:
1. General evaluation of the implementation: Are the orientation and implementation of available formats and support services - within the allocated budget - suitable and appropriately implemented in order to achieve the desired effects of measures regarding output as efficiently and effectively as possible?
2. Evaluation of specific services: With respect to observable and anticipated developments in the RTI domain (including RTI policy), where are support service formats adequate, and where should improvements be made?
3. Action required and options for action: Where are any white spots encountered, or where should new and better approaches and tools be established? According to which principles should these essentially be designed?
In 2013, the FFG (Austrian Research Promotion Agency), the Department for European and International Programmes (FFG-EIP), was commissioned by the Republic of Austria and the Austrian Economic Chambers to support the implementation of HORIZON 2020 and ERA for the period 2014-2020. The primary aim of this measure is to foster the participation of Austrian RTI (research, technology and innovation) participants in the European Framework Programme for research and innovation, Horizon 2020 (H2020) and in multilateral initiatives.
The results of the evaluation can be found in the final report which is in German only, including a summary in English. The report can be downloaded here.TOP
