OLD EN: FIT-IT – the Programme

The FIT-IT programme focuses on IT research, innovation and technology and promotes excellent cooperative research projects between ICT companies and research institutions to enable technological breakthroughs in the long term and to exploit economic potentials in Austria.

There are currently five programme lines: Embedded Systems, Semantic Systems and Services, Systems on Chip, Visual Computing, and Trust in IT Systems. 

The initiatives ModSim, ARTEMIS und eniac are also carried out as part of the FIT-IT umbrella.

ModSim (Computational Mathematics) aims at developing new modelling and simulation applications for Austrian industry and research by implementing structural measures.

ARTEMIS and eniac are public-private partnerships between the European Commission, member states and European industrial enterprises in transnational and industry-driven funding programmes for precompetitive research in the fields of embedded systems (ARTEMIS) and nanoelectronics (eniac). Funding is provided both under the FIT-IT programme and from funds of the 7th EU Framework Programme.

FIT-IT is a programme of the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) managed by FFG.
