-
Hotel Post
Breakout / Working Group
german language

In 2011, the Austrian Government adopted its strategy for research, technology and innovation with a view to join the group of “Innovation Leaders”. Accordingly, in the chapter on “International Positioning”, the strategy document emphasizes the development of a fine-tuned international science and research foreign policy.
On these grounds a working group led conjointly by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF) and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit) was set up in 2011 to prepare strategic recommendations pertaining to the internationalization of the Austrian RDI system. The so called working group “Internationalization and RTI Foreign Policy” consists of representatives of ministries (BMWF, bmvit, Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs, Family and Youth, Federal Ministry of European and International Affairs) and stakeholders in the field of RTI.
At the Special Event the strategic recommendations will be presented to the public for the first time and will be up for an open discussion.
