Austria: Hotspot for R&D Headquarters

The performance of Austria as an innovative business location speaks for itself. The Austrian model of success creates optimal conditions for companies such as BMW, Bosch, Infineon and Novartis which bundle their R&D activities and competence centers in Austria.

Top-level research, innovative spin-offs, clusters and big players on the global marketplace ensure that inspiring ideas are turned into marketable products and services. The required support accelerates the process, in light of the fact that research is subsidized by the state, the related infrastructure exists and specialized staff is excellently trained.

Four out of five multinationals involved in production and about one quarter of regional headquarters carry out strategic research and development work on behalf of the entire Group from their Austrian base. The private sector accounts for more than two-thirds of Austrian R&D expenditures. The government offers tax benefits to companies carrying out research and promotes their cooperation with the scientific community. Companies are entitled to claim a research premium of 14 percent.
