The FFG already offers a range of programmes providing for the participation or even funding of international (primarily European) project partners (universities/research institutes or companies). The existing portfolio has now been extended in a first step to include suitable formats for international collaborations, to be able to respond promptly to cooperation requests in a targeted manner.
The present Call of the programme "Beyond Europe" aims at increasing the international RTI activities and collaborations of Austrian companies and research institutions with partners outside Europe in the form of research projects.
It is assumed that Beyond Europe partners will generally bear their own costs. They may however receive direct funding from the programme budget to a limited extend, depending on the respective funding instrument.
