Innovation project development
Hungary is still lagging behind within the EU in the amount of resources dedicated to research and development (R&D). However, the past seven years have seen an advance in this regard. The recently adopted National Research and Development and Innovation Strategyaims to increase R&D spending from 1.2% (the present figure) to 1.8% of GDP.
During the coming EU programming period (2014-2020), R&D will be a clear winner: the Europen Union is expected to spend EUR 80 to 85 billion on innovation. Part of this amount will be allocated to organizations through national bodies while another part will be awarded based on decisions made in Brussels. In the latter case Hungarian businesses and research organizations will be able to win funds either as members of a partnership or in open competition with organizations of other EU members.
