Fast Track Digital
Fast Track Digital addresses companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) which aim to open up new digital markets or revolutionise existing markets by developing novel digital solutions.
This funding programme supports technology, innovation and research projects working to develop novel digital solutions which are both marketable and competitive. Fast Track Digital is designed to shorten the time from initial idea to market entry, by speeding up the process of helping businesses to exploit new scientific findings, and simultaneously enhancing company expertise and digitalisation skills.
Fast Track Digital is processed by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency, with kind support of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Economy (BMAW).
