- Stamp Validity
From 10 April 2018 to 20 June 2018 (date of postmark), applicants will have the opportunity to apply within QFTE to the FFG (Austrian Research Promotion Agency) and FWF (Austrian Science Fund) funding organisations for support for defined research and development measures.
The FWF is offering targeted funding for postdocs. With a maximum term of up to three years, priority is given to the personnel costs of a postdoc. During the funding period, the postdoc will work in cooperation between a research institution and a company in the field of quantum research and technology development.
The FFG offers funding for cooperative research and development projects. Research institutions and companies jointly define an application-oriented project in the field of quantum research and technology. The requirement is the involvement of at least one Austrian company. The maximum term is three years.
Furthermore, the Austria Wirtschaftsservice Gesellschaft mbH (AWS) is available for consulting concerning, e.g., start-up financing, property rights, as well as technology research.
Submission will only be possible at the respective funding organisation. Funding decisions will be made in the FWF Board's session in November 2018.
For both measures, the FWF and the FFG have a budget of around €5.5m at their disposal. The funds will be granted by the Austrian National Foundation.
