Politics, administration and business have been following the same credo in unison for years: we need more science and research in our country in order to remain ahead of the global competition. But are the noble words followed by tangible action? What does a fertile environment for successful research look like and does it take place in Austria? How do we define the interplay between basic and applied research in the 21st century, and what role should the economy and public funds play in this? In the course of an expert discussion between administration, science and business, the main focuses of domestic research policy were discussed.
