Strategy 2010 – Perspectives for Research, Technology and Innovation in Austria
At the end of its first term of office the Council for Research and Technology Development presented a position paper in the form of its Strategy 2010 published in August 2005. This built upon the National Research and Innovation Plan (NAFIP) published in December 2002 and contained guidelines covering ten areas of action for Austrian research, technology and innovation policy in the period up to 2010 and beyond. In early 2008 the Austrian Council subjected all recommendations made in Strategy 2010 to a systematic survey to verify the status of their implementation. The results of this survey show that more than two thirds of the 59 recommendations made in the Strategy document have already been or are in the process of being implemented.
