  • In the Impact Innovation program, the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) promotes the use of innovation methods to solve a problem. Central to this is a process in which a wide range of people are involved in order to find new ideas and develop an effective solution. The result can be services, products or processes that offer added value for the target group.

    Applications are open to all research topics - whether traditional or very current fields of technology (e.g. digitalization, climate, environment, mobility, energy, circular economy, eco-technologies, sustainability, decarbonization, etc.). The transformation towards a sustainable economy is also supported.
