Position paper of the Federation of Austrian Industries on Research Location Austria

Press conference on the RTI Strategy © Federation of Austrian Industries

The internationally successful industrial companies are the ones Austria can be particularly proud of. Companies account for two-thirds of research and development (ER&D) activities in Austria and are characterized by high innovation dynamics and high export ratios. “Our objective is clear: we have to strengthen the Austrian ‘production powerhouse‘ on the basis of research, technology and innovation and make it a flagship in Europe“ explained Philipp von Lattorff, CEO of Boehringer Ingelheim RCV in Vienna and Chairman of the RTI Committee of the Federation of Austrian Industries, in commenting on the vision of industry. 

For industrial firms located in Austria, an attractive business location is particularly defined by ambitiously structured R&D financing. In this case, the research tax credit as a unique selling proposition and direct research funding are decisive factors of success. Excellent, internationally visible partners in science, strong bridges along the entire value chain and innovative minds are also required. Intensive networking on a European and international level is crucial for Austria. The chances opened up by digitization and new technologies must be leveraged for new solutions, innovative products and disruptive business models.

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.
