Promoting Internationalisation

Find new cooperation partners – conquer new markets!


Want to work with the world’s best? No problem – with support from the FFG

  • Whether bilateral calls, multinational networks, or framework programmes extending over several years – there are many options for funding international cooperation.
  • Several national programmes also permit foreign partners to participate in project consortia (max 20% of total funding).
  • True to its commitment to 'targeted openness', Horizon Europe will continue to offer third countries a wide range of opportunities to participate in all four pillars of the programme.  

 

The FFG supports Austrian research and university institutes, companies and other organisations in establishing and expanding cooperative relationships. A range of special measures are available for cooperating with non-European partners, both with and without a specific country focus.
