The Austrian Research and Technology Reports are state-of-art status reports to the Austrian parliament on the nation’s federally funded research, technology and innovation. The annual Austrian Research and Technology Report covers topical issues of national and international research and technology policy. It analyses current development trends and provides comprehensive data on research and development as well as information on special topics. The reports draw on current data to present an overview of specific trends in research, technology and innovation (RTI) and show how Austria measures up internationally in selected categories. The reports are commissioned  by  the  Federal  Ministry  of  Education,  Science  and  Research (BMBWF);  the  Federal  Ministry  for  Transport,  Innovation,  and  Technology  (BMVIT);  and  the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (BMDW).
