Strong rise of research in clusters

The complexity of the projects is increasing due to the more intensified interdisciplinary networking and the trend towards a greater proportion of research and development. The number of cooperation projects is declining significantly in cases where there is no research partner involved, whether universities, universities of applied sciences or non-university facilities. The business community is calling for increased support by the scientific community. Here researchers are more frequently approaching companies to carry out joint research projects. Clusters are never to be considered one-way streets. This also applies to qualification measures, especially designed to transfer university know-how to companies. Suitable qualification networks and funding programs of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency FFG support both sides.

Anyone believing that quick results can be achieved is mistaken. The right team has to be created, and mutual trust must be development. Maria Nedl, Head of the Research and Technology Policy Department in the Federal Ministry for Science, Research and Economy, points to this basis of trust within the individual cluster enabling such a partnership. The satisfaction of the cluster members is evident, amongst other factors, by the growing number of cluster members.
