The Strategy Unit, together with the management, is responsible for the fundamental strategic positioning of the FFG within the national and international innovation systems. It serves as the interface between the management and the divisions, identifying and realising strategic potentials in the company and coordinating the implementation of the strategic guidelines. One of its major tasks is the continued development of the funding portfolio. It acts as a think tank and analysis centre and supplies services to the divisions.
The Strategy Unit engages in constant dialogue with the relevant federal ministries and other policy making and advisory institutions.
