Abstract

Decreasing performance in innovation may lead to re-enforcement of economic stagnation in developed countries. Well-balanced development of projects aimed at finding answers to the ‘grand challenges’, in parallel to curiosity-driven research, could make notable contribution in preventing such a negative trend. Evidence from Austria shows the contradictions intrinsic to well-established innovation systems. The authors recommend re-adjusting mechanisms that foster career development in academia and creating organizations with sufficient administrative capacities and autonomy to attract qualified staff and funding.
