Austria in ITEA

The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) is the national funding agency for industrial research and development in Austria. Research, development and innovation are central drivers for economic, technological and social development, and about 59% of FFG funding goes to projects with a strong focus on digitalisation. FFG supports instruments like ITEA to boost progress in Austria on the premise that businesses that undertake research grow faster, achieve higher export rates and create more employment than those who don’t.

On this webpage, you will find an overview of activities and publications of Austria in ITEA. It provides valuable insights into the potential benefits of participating in an ITEA project and whether ITEA could be a fit for your organisation. You can also find information regarding the funding opportunities and the national funding contact details.

Impact stories with Austrian participation

Impact is one of the main ambitions in ITEA. Impact on business, on the market, on society. This is a key value in ITEA, and impact and potential impact are central during the project lifecycle: in project evaluation, monitoring, closure and in communication of the results. With the (financial) support of national Public Authorities, many ITEA projects have achieved incredible results, which are gathered in ITEA Impact stories.

Statements from Austrian partners

ITEA is certainly an environment to be in if you want to be innovative in the software domain. And we have learned a lot from being together with different partners, from software to hardware and from researchers to suppliers.

Since its foundation, IT-V has been involved in publicly funded research projects around every two or three years, but this experience with ITEA was quite unlike their previous participations. The advantage is that you’re meeting people from all over Europe, which leads to better networking and, ultimately, more chances and opportunities.
