  • The theoretical foundations of STI policy (Klaus Schuch, scientific director ZSI)
  • STI policy paradigms (Wolfgang Polt, Director POLICIES Joanneum Research)
  • Innovation support instruments and programmes (Klaus Schuch, scientific director ZSI)
  • Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) (Gorazd Weiss, Head of Unit ZSI)
  • Open data, open science and open access (Katja Mayer, researcher ZSI)
  • New developments in Peer Review (Dorothea Sturn, researcher ZSI)

Participants were policy makers, policy deliverers and researchers involved in their country´s enhancement of the National Innovation Systems. Overall, they were very satisfied with the outcome of the seminar.

The seminar in Vienna is part of a seminar series. The second part will be held from 07-08 of November 2017 in Athens and will be organised by CeRISS.
