Strengthening Austria as a location for research and innovation

Research, development and innovation are central drivers for economic, technological and social development. Businesses that undertake research grow faster, achieve higher export rates and create more employment than those who don’t. The FFG applies a wide variety of measures to support structural change in Austria.

We can help you tap into your innovative potential and exploit new market opportunities by putting new knowledge to work.
