Austrian research spending grows

The Austrian federal government has increased spending on public research by 13 per cent since the financial crisis, according to a government report

The report, issued this month, showed that the government spent a total of 0.94 per cent of its GDP on public research in 2014, while in 2008 this expenditure amounted to just 0.83 per cent of GDP, according to the government’s Science in Austria 2014 report.

Austria’s total R&D spending—including private, public and international funds— amounted to 2.88 per cent of GDP, up from 2.67 per cent in 2008. However, the 2014 data show a slight decrease from 2013, when spending stood at 2.9 per cent of GDP.
