Policy Brief on the Austrian Innovation Union Status Report 2014
Competing with other continents and regions, the only way for Europe and its Member States to maintain status and standards of living of their population is to succeed as a site of innovation. The Flagship Initiative “Innovation Union” is a concerted and holistic action checklist to achieve the “Europe 2020” targets in relation to innovation. The Austrian Government set Austria the target to catch up with the “Innovation Leaders” in Europe. The measures set to reach this Austrian RTI-objective also have to be matched with the action checklist of the “Innovation Union” and the “Innovation Union Scoreboard” as a reference framework.
