The objective of this work is to estimate productivity effects of R&D investments across different industries in Austria. Our work extends the common practice of evaluation of innovation policy by setting up an analytical model in the preliminary stages of strategic policy-making. Concretely, in this paper we provide an indicator as a pilot application to estimate comparative advantages in Austrian industries. This quantitative approach can therefore yield useful insight in terms of productivity effects of R&D expenditures of several industrial sectors and give Austrian policy makers relevant information which industries are of particular interest. Thus, our output is a prospective step to identify relevant industries and to create preconditions for improving the allocation of R&D and planning innovation policy priority fields more strategically.
