The fteval community launched an internal working group for capturing the state of the art of impact assessment of R&I policy and transfer it to the Austrian context. Three sub-groups analyse specific aspects of the impact on social innovations, on science-society relations and on “green economy”. These groups are steered by Joanneum Research, the OIS Center at Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft and the Austrian Institute for SME Research. First results are expected for the end-2020.
