The Austrian Report on Research and Technology summarises state and development of research and technology in Austria and presents government activities to promote scientific research and innovation in Austria. As a part of the 2015 edition of this report, ZEW contributes two chapters: First, the position of Austria in international rankings of innovation performance is analysed by looking at four different rankings: The Innovation Union Scoreboard, the Global Innovation Index, the Innovationsindikator, and the Global Competitiveness Report. A second chapter describes the current state of innovation-oriented public procurement in Austria and its role for innovation activities of Austrian enterprises, using recent data from the Community Innovation Survey for an international comparison.
