Swiss foundation provides EUR 1.4 million in support for quantum physics at IST Austria

Johannes Fink and Giorgios Katsaros © IST Austria

The quantum physicists Johannes Fink and Georgios Katsaros working at IST Austria are working on combining two distinct fields of quantum physics to achieve a new type of research approach. The focus is on developing novel types of hybrid devices consisting of a combination of semi- and superconductor elements, which may have the potential to serve as building blocks for future quantum computers.

Markus Reinhard, Managing Director of the NOMIS foundation, explained the intention behind the decision of the SWISS foundation. “At NOMIS we try to create a spark in the world of science by funding projects which go beyond common expectations. After a thorough peer-review we decided to support this novel and exciting approach of Profs. Fink and Katsaros. A further reason for our commitment is the excellent scientific environment IST Austria offers to basic researchers.”

Russian startup Bobsla ventures into the Austrian market and is developing a “miniature snow drifter” for brave winter tourists

In addition to conventional skiing and snowboarding, tourists in the Ötztal Valley in Austria can also spend their time enjoying a further attraction. Bobsla is a vehicle which looks like a fusion of a snow plough and a go-cart. It is steered by its guests and operated on snow surfaces.

The new research allowance in Germany – in competition with the Austrian research tax credit?

Companies carrying out research and development in Austria have the possibility to apply for research funding, namely the so-called research tax credit. In an international comparison, the Austrian research tax credit is a recipe for success and is designed to showcase and enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a research location. The successive increase in the research tax credit from the original level of three percent in 2002 to 14 percent at present has made a massive contribution to this success.
