The Structural Programmes serve to optimise structures and infrastructures in research and innovation. This enables companies, research and transfer organisations to identify new methods of cooperation, to generate new knowledge and to establish new areas of strength. Competencies in science and business are improved and the Austrian innovation system is strengthened in the long term.
Through its Structural Programmes, the FFG aims to create the preconditions necessary for the efficient cooperation of all actors in the innovation system: structural bottlenecks and weak points are overcome and proven structures constantly adapted to meet new challenges. New forms of partnership are developed, particularly between scientific institutions and business, new knowledge is generated and new fields of expertise are established. This serves to sustainably strengthen the Austrian innovation system.
