Austrian FP9 Think Tank


The task of the Austrian Think Tank was to develop ideas and proposals for a future European Re-search, Technology and Innovation (RTI) policy and specifically a more ef-fective and efficient Framework Programme as an input for the discussions and preparations of the next (9th) Framework Programme, now called Horizon Europe, in Austria, in Brussels and across Europe. As the first main outcome of its work the Think Tank produced 10 Theses between May and September 2016 in Vienna. In a second phase the Austrian FP9 Think Tank elaborated some of the ideas further and made more concrete suggestions for the future of the EU’s RTI policy.
