RTI-Projects applied research
The funding of applied research projects is intended to strengthen scientific research in the fields of action of the Lower Austria RTI Strategy 2027, which can contribute to solving societal challenges in the short, medium or long term, or which has societal or economic benefits.
The targeted expansion of research competencies in Lower Austria contributes to the profile of Lower Austria as a research hub and promotes excellent and internationally visible research. Lower Austrian colleges, universities, non-university research institutions and companies are thus also supported in participating successfully in calls for existing national and international research funding programs and in entering into increased cooperation with international partners.
The networking of various institutions in project consortia is an important aspect in ensuring the dynamic development of Lower Austria as an RTI hub.
