Evaluation of the national support system for Horizon 2020 and the European Research Area (ERA)
AIT Austrian Institute of Technology is lead contractor for pursuing a systematic evaluation of the national support system for Horizon 2020 and ERA. The evaluation is oriented towards answering two overarching questions:
- Are the design and implementation of support measures adequate for reaching the desired objectives in an effective and cost-efficient manner?
- Is there a need for re-orientation for support measures due to recent changes and expected changes in the RTI system?
The evaluation makes use of a broad spectrum of methods including online surveys, expert interviews, focus groups, Delphi surveys and participatory workshops.
