Innovation and research are affordable

The Austrian innovation cheque, worth 5,000 euro, helps small and medium-sized enterprises to implement their innovative ideas and projects with the help of scientific experts. SMEs can thus launch continuous research and innovation activities. The objective is to eliminate the threshold for collaborations with research institutions.

The innovation cheque can be obtained once per year. The program is carried out by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth.

They also assist with feasibility studies, preparation of business plans or writing applications for the innovation cheque.  Further information can be found on the website of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
