Autumn boost for science in Austria

The Austrian government has this month outlined plans for €1.2 billion of R&D investment and published a long-term strategy for the life sciences.

In early November, the federal government presented a package to raise public R&D by €700m and private spending by a further €500m.

Whilst not all of the funds have been allocated, the budget will include at least €280m for the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the country’s main basic research funder, and measures to promote technology transfer and spin-out companies from universities.
