1 ICT Location Centrope: Structure, Characteristics, Potentials Part 2:Guenther Krumpak ITBeurope ICT Centrope, Vienna, March 16, 2010

2 ICT potential in Centrope: The purpose of the CITT project has been to  Assess the ICT landscape - industry & research - of the Centrope region  To investigate ICT related technology transfer - the collaboration (potential) between business and academia and  To propose methods and tools to increase it as one possible method to make Europe more competitive in ICT, as well as  To devise cross border cluster strategies with a strong focus on technology transfer

3 Reminder: Centrope

4 Capitals = ICT Hubs

5 Regional ICT Centers: Austria

6 Regional ICT Centers: Czech Rep.

7 Regional ICT Centers: Slovak Rep. Žilina

8 Regional ICT Centers: Hungary

9 Centrope: Position, competition and/or partners

10 Centrope‘s ICT Markets ICT markets (Domestic) 2008, comparison: North America: 28% of the world’s ICT market Europe 32% ~ € 620 bn Largest market: Germany 21.3%* ~ € 132 bn Centrope Austria ~ € 14.0 bn Czech Republic~ € 10.3 bn Slovak Republic~ € 8.6 bn Hungary~ € 6.4 bn Total ~ 6.3%*~ € 39.3 bn * = Percentage of the European market

12 Facts&Figures Main centers of ICT R&D in Centrope: Bratislava, Brno, Budapest, Debrecen (MTA ATOMKI!), Graz, Košice, Linz, Miskolc, Ostrava, Prague, Vienna, Žilina etc. 10,000 ICT companies > 1 employee 350,000 ICT workforce 60 ICT relevant universities and research organisations 36,000 ICT scientists/researchers Background Signs of change: T-Mobile-Building, further to the back Vienna‘s high tech district Donau City Photo: mobil_center_wien.jpg mobil_center_wien.jpg

13 Technology Transfer TT exists on a low to medium level:  A: Increased considerably due to more political awareness: New legal status of universities since ~2000, creation of „competence centers“, now COMET programme; Funding programs, e.g.FIT IT etc.  CR: Strong interest from ICT multinationals (IBM, MS, CA etc.),  SK: Lower costs until recently, electronics, automotive  H: Long tradition in informatics, electronics. Public funding in all 3 new EU states still low

14 R&D in Centrope R&D Expenditure in Austria 2009 ~ €7.7 bn. (Statistics Austria) R&D-Share ~ 2,73% GDP ~ 40% Public ~ 45% Private ~ 15% Foreign (FDI) Changes since 2000: Public + 67% (7.6 % p.a.) Private + 89% R&D expenditure total+ 70% (7.84% p.a.) R&D expenditure for digital technologies 2004 ~ € 1.07 bn. 2007 ~ € 1.4 bn. Quellen: Statistik Austria, Statistical Yearbook 2007, pp. 150-176 u. Stat. JB 05/07, S. 162, BMVIT, ITBeurope

15 R&D in Centrope R&D expenditure CR 2006: R&D (GERD) 1.54% GDP (2006) < OECD  (2.26%) (1996: 0.97%). 40% Public 57% Private 3% Foreign ~30% of R&D by SMEs Ratio of R&D personnel to total employment more than doubled from 1996 to 2006 and is now close to EU27 average. HR for science and technology (HRST) 33% of total employment Venture capital financing is extremely low and has fallen as a share of GDP in recent years.

16 R&D in Centrope R&D expenditure Hungary 2006: (GERD) 1% GDP < OECD  (2.26%). 43% Private (OECD  64%) Target for GERD of 1.4% of GDP in 2010 target for business 45% EU provides significant funding for R&D. R&D personnel per 1,000 total employment just over half EU27 average in 2006, recent increases See also gary_th6.pdf gary_th6.pdf

17 R&D in Centrope R&D expenditure SK 2007: 0.46% GDP < OECD  (2.26%). (=Result of restructuring and closure of government and industrial R&D institutes during the transition to a market economy) Private sector R&D: 39.5% public sector R&D: 56.9% Rapid rise in university enrolments (+100% 1995 - 2003) Recent reforms: Government shifting public support towards programme-based funding  Goal: 60% public R&D by 2015. Share of science & engineering graduates > OECD  (Tradition of mathematics and science education) Most research oriented towards basic research in areas such as physical sciences. Little applied research or engineering

18 Local strengths Austria: High tech diversification Public R&D funding CEE hub (Vienna) Czech Republic: Technology Transfer (Brno) High foreign R&D investments High quality of studies Hungary: Strong hardware/electronics sector Esther Dyson, New York-based venture capital fund specializing in East European technology companies: ”There is no shortage of ideas. The potential for new tech startups is huge.” High ICT export rates Slovak Republic Electronics 20% of total exports Highest growth rates Fast growing engineering enrollments

19 Austria and the CEE ICT Markets Situation until end 2008: Austria: Market largely saturated and competitive on high level: On European indicator scale between no. 1 (e-Gov) and ~ no. 15 (broadband*) CR, SR, HU and rest of CEE are main export and internatinalisation targets (57% of ICT exports/investments) for Austrian companies: € 4,60 bn. (+31%), export share 41,5% multinational enterprises:€ 7,20 Mrd. (+12,5%), Export share 75,3% * excl. Mobile BB
