First signs of growth: progress with the 2014-20 programmes

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

During the period Autumn 2015 to Spring 2016, implementation has progressed and project generation and selection have started in earnest across the IQ - Net programmes. The focus has shifted towards project generation and selection and early data on demand are promising. Proactive approaches with regard to applications have been praised for their efficiency. A rise in more complex projects (ITIs, major projects) has been observed, associated with more demanding administrative management and a change in project applicants. Demand is expected to increase across all themes, including as a result of MAs’ efforts. R&I and SME competitiveness have emerged as themes with highest demand, although firm conclusions are difficult to draw given the early stages of implementation. The results - orientation has become more embedded, but its technical implementation remains challenging (indicator compatibility with project activities...) as it was during the programme preparation phase. Similar struggles are anticipated regarding the collection of indicator data at the programme level.
