Below is a description of known limitations and potential solutions. Please contact us if you encounter an issue not listed below. Known limitations for the Economics of Industrial Research and Innovation website:

  • Structure: Some heading elements are not used in a coherent way, resulting in an incorrect hierarchy.
  • Links: Some link text does not describe its purpose or destination. This means that the purpose of the field is sometimes unclear.

  • Interactive graphs: The graphsare not accessible to screen reader users as they do not contain appropriate text alternatives and keyboard navigation.
