Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a central role in Austria's economy. In order to facilitate the entry into a continuous research and development activity and to raise the quality of the research projects, BMK and BMDW bundle together with the FFG coordinated SME subsidies. For SMEs, appropriate funding is available for each phase (parallel funding excluded). With the various subsidy models and non-repayable grants from 6,000 Euros (eg Projekt.Start), grants from 10,000 Euros (eg Innovation Voucher, Patent.Voucher) to max. 90,000 Euros (eg Small Scale Project), the FFG makes it easier for SMEs to get into research and development. The core objective of the SME funding is a subsequent, concrete research and development project in the company (eg General Programme, Early Stage). SME Hotline: 05 7755-5000.
