“We can fund 14 projects with a total of EUR 4.6 million. In this way, we support the opening up of new markets and profit from the know-how of international partners. Global networking plays a decisive role in becoming more internationally competitive, especially in the fields of research and technology”, says Reinhold Mitterlehner, Minister of Science, Research and Economy.

The funded projects will lead to new partnerships with companies, institutions and universities in the USA, Canada, Australia, China, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey and Egypt. The sectors involved range from information and communication technology and life sciences to production, Industry 4.0 and projects in the fields of mobility and agriculture.

"The "Beyond Europe" program links top Austrian research companies with partners in leading innovative countries such as South Korea, the global number one. We have spread our innovation network across the entire globe, and thus strengthen our partnerships outside of the European Union. This will bring new ideas to the country, which companies in Austria can implement and use as the basis for creating new jobs”, according to State Secretary Harald Mahrer.  

“Beyond Europe” promotes cooperative R&D projects (several partners in a consortium focusing on a joint project, funding to the amount of up to EUR 500,000 per project) as well as exploratory projects (preparation of research, development and innovation projects, funded with up to EUR 200,000 per projects). Following the tender, the applications were evaluated by experts based on a pre-defined scoring system. Subsequently a specialized jury selected the best projects to be supported.
