The Federal Government’s RTI strategy officially expires in 2020. A new strategy is currently in preparation.
The Federal Government’s RTI strategy officially expires in 2020. A new strategy is currently in preparation. At the same time, during the last 10 years, dozens of evaluations of parts of the RTI system in Austria have taken place.
The FTEVAL takes this as an opportunity to question critically what can actually be learned from the multiple evaluations for the (new) RTI strategy. To this end, in a first step, three impulse panels will mark the frame. These referenced key findings from the OECD System Review, the Data-Based Implementation Monitoring by the German Council for Research and Technology Development, and the two partial reviews on the implementation of the RTI strategy, published in the Austrian Research and Technology Reports.
In a second step, small groups discuss certain topics that are considered important for an RTI strategy or where weaknesses are perceived. These include, for example, the subject areas “Basic Research”, “Applied Research and Impact on Business and Society” or “Internationalization.” The main discussion results from the small groups are summarized and discussed in the “Fish Bowl.” In particular, cross-connections and more general findings from the small group findings are distilled and solutions are reflected to overcome the problems identified.
