presentation at CES © Georg Führlinger

This analysis closely evaluated important areas in the innovation policies of individual countries and compared them on the basis of twelve categories. A total of 38 nations were examined.

The assessment categories used in the Innovation Scorecard include the attitude of governments towards disruptive technologies such as the sharing economy or self-driving vehicles. In addition to the expansion and costs of broadband Internet, the tax system and environmental protection also play a key role in the analysis. Accordingly, Austria performs particularly well in the fields of research and development, broadband infrastructure and favorable laws or regulations in the field of self-driving cars. Alongside Austria, the Innovation Champions 2018 include Finland, United Kingdom, Australia, Sweden, USA, Singapore, Netherlands, Canada, Portugal, Czech Republic, Denmark and New Zealand.

The new research allowance in Germany – in competition with the Austrian research tax credit?

Companies carrying out research and development in Austria have the possibility to apply for research funding, namely the so-called research tax credit. In an international comparison, the Austrian research tax credit is a recipe for success and is designed to showcase and enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a research location. The successive increase in the research tax credit from the original level of three percent in 2002 to 14 percent at present has made a massive contribution to this success.
