Ex-Post Evaluation of the Center of Excellence Programs K plus und Kind/net

The Federal Ministries BMVIT and BMWFJ commissioned the Institute for Economic and Innovation Research (POLICIES) along with the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) and the University of Manchester to perform the ex-post evaluation of the K plus and Kind/net programs.

The K-programs have been created in Austria as instruments to promote collaborative research between science and industry with the aim to improve networking and cooperation between parts of the innovation system that generate and exploit scientific knowledge. The evaluation is based primarily on a qualitative analysis, and in particular quantitative analyses, of the different aspects of impact.
