Indikatoren zur Erfassung der Wirkungen von Förderungen der FFG
Indicators for capturing the impacts of subsidy programmes administered by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG)

The goal of this study was to identify valid indicators to monitor the impacts of the heterogeneous programme portfolio of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG). We developed intervention logics for the various support instruments of the FFG and employed a participative process to include the needs of different stakeholder groups. The result of the study is a set of best practice indicators, structured along the intervention logics and across the broad portfolio of the FFG, which represents the basis for the impact monitoring of the portfolio.
