07: Research Promotion Followed by Financial Bottleneck?

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Research and development are supported by various public promotional instruments and the European competition framework leaves ample scope for manoeuvre. However, very often enterprises fail in implementing commercially viable research results because of financing problems, also known as “valley of death”. This working group will compare previous experiences and new concepts and will discuss possible improvements for Austria in the light of international developments.
