Austria’s researchers surpass the “Horizon 2020” billion euro threshold

Horizon 2020 © EU/Horizon 2020

“Austria ranks among the ten leading EU countries with respect to its participation. Austria is even ranked second when it comes to the success rate of its applications”, states Carlos Moedas, EU Commissioner for Science, Research and Innovation. “The ambitious goal of EUR 1.5 billion is within reach”, adds Heinz Faßmann, Federal Minister of Education, Science and Research.

In the meantime, Austria has caught up to France in the “Horizon 2020” ranking and is now second ex aequo behind Belgium with regard to the success rate of its participation. The rate of 17 percent is clearly higher than the EU average of 14.7 percent. Considering the various programs, researchers and companies in Austria are particularly successful in the European Research Council (ERC - EUR 193.7 million), Information and Communications Technologies (ICT - EUR 147.5 million), Transport (EUR 118 million) and Energy (EUR 100.4 million).
