In recent years, tax-based research funding has become increasingly important internationally and nationally. At the same time, the effects on R&D investment of firms and innovation output are not clarified, as studies come to partly contrary results. Based on a recent large-scale OECD study of tax-based research funding and the evaluation of the Austrian “Forschungsprämie”, fteval organises an international event on the effects of tax-based research funding: How do international models differ in their effects? Does tax subsidy lead to corporate spending? Does it foster incremental or radical innovation? What are the interdependencies with direct research funding? What data is necessary to enable the RTI policy to make evidence-based decisions? These questions are to be discussed with national and international experts.
Please find the programme of the event here.
The event is open to the public; please register using the link at the bottom of the page.
