The European Context: Competition and Integration

 

The European Research Area as a political programme aims to overcome frontiers in research and development. For the researchers and the institutions at which they work this means greater competition and pressure to organise on internationally visible scales. At the same time, however, it opens up new opportunities for co-operation, for networking and for exploiting synergies.

In a rapid catching-up process, Austria has put itself in a very good position to meet these challenges, with a research quota that is well above the European Union average. The high degree of participation in research projects at the European level also proves Austria’s determination to use the opportunities presented by international co-operation. Austria’s researchers, research managers and policymakers are active participants in and shapers of EU Research Framework Programmes. In its capacity as president of the European Council, Austria bears a special responsibility for the preparation and successful start of the next Seventh Framework Programme.
