Public sector partners

The funding models of the CDG are particularly attractive to the Federal Ministry for Digital, Business and Enterprise and the National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development for the following reasons:


  • As a Public Private Partnership model, companies finance the research work of the research units together with the public purse.
  • They make a contribution to securing Austria as a location for research and business for the long term.
  • Several federal provinces support the establishment of research units with suitable start-up financing.
  • For the "Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort", the funding models of the CDG are amongst the most important instruments for funding research at the interface of science and business.
