For a small country like Austria, knowledge capital is all the more important. For years, Austrian research has been gaining momentum through the country’s involvement in many research projects and, above all, its close cooperation with the other EU Member States.

At the same time, Austria participates in the establishment of a European research area, which is to provide an appropriate framework for the European continent to address the challenges of the coming decades, arising in the most varied fields, in a sustainable and future-oriented manner.
