1 Sustainability Research in Austria at:sd - The Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development Flanders, Six Countries Programme Conference Brussels, 28 February - 1 March 2002 Hans-Günther Schwarz Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Energy and Environmental Technologies

2 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy Goals of the Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development: To foster a structural change leading towards a sustainable economy through research, development and dissemination.

3 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy Strategic objectives Strengthening of R&D competence by fostering interdisciplinary co-operation and networking Support in generating new R&D projects setting a landmark for the future Dissemination of R&D results and of the concept of sustainable development of the economy

4 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy Qualities of the Programme Calls for tenders oriented towards the overall goal of the programme Supporting the generation of future-oriented RTD projects Support by program management before and after the call Evaluation of project proposals by an international jury Dissemination of the results and support through accompanying measures

5 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy 7 Key Principles Orientation at function / service Resource efficiency Use of renewable resources Multiple (cascadic) use of resources Embedding, flexibility and adaptability (appropriateness) Tolerance (fault-proof), ability to learn and risk-precaution Ability to ensure work, income and quality of life evaluation by international jury

6 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy basic research of strategic importance basic research studies with active involvement of companies concept-driven development of new technologies and components innovative conceptual studies demonstration projects accompanying measures stimulation of academic spin-offs project competitions

7 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy Building of TomorrowFactory of TomorrowEnergy Systems of Tomorrow innovative residential, office and commercial buildings re-modelling and re- vitalisation renewable energies, focus on bio-energy Safe and environmentally sound power supply in a liberalized market Long term oriented energy technologies in the context of international co operation accompanying measures: active programme assistance, support for pilot and demonstration projects information and dissemination activities, project competitions, occupational skill enhancement activities, academic spin-off programmes production systems, production technologies management systems, key technologies product-service-systems renewable resources

8 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy What is the Building of Tomorrow? innovative residential, office and commercial buildings with a high market potential which – compared to the present practice in Austria – considerably reduce energy and material input which increasingly use renewable sources of energy, renewable and ecologically sound materials which also take into account social aspects and cost efficiency

9 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy technologies and innovations in production- processes product- service- systems renewable resources demonstration businesses demonstration processes demonstration products The Factory of Tomorrow

10 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy Energy Systems of Tomorrowfocus: to increase the share of renewable energy sources in Austria (and reduce CO 2 -output) to secure the quality of power generation in Austria

11 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy

12 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy Success stories: considerable interest and participation among stakeholders in industry and research after only 3 years a number of concept studies will be realised as demonstration projects: e.g. construction of 8 buildings of tomorrow will start this year

13 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy benchmarks (1999 – 2001) 82 projects financed within the first three years ( ) 300 institutions (universities, non-university research centres, industry) involved ( ) funding granted by contract and/or decree financial volume: ATS 132 millions (Euro 9,6 millions) ( ) approx. ATS 650 millions (Euro 43,6 millions) ( ) main funding: Austrian Ministry of Technology (about 2/3) co-funding: regional governments

14 Austrian Programme on Technologies for Sustainable Development - Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology Sustainability in Economy genesis of the research programme 1 call for proposals per sub-programme per year 1999: start of the RTD-programme, 1 st sub-programme (building of tomorrow) 2000: 2 nd sub-programme (factory of tomorrow) 2002: 3 rd sub-programme (energy systems of tomorrow) programme scheduled to run until approx or longer
