Funding in the area of research and development is our

key to success.

They cushion part of the risk and allow you to,

establish and consistently pursue your research strategy over the long term.

Innovative research is often risky, and new products and processes often require a certain amount of lead time before they generate economic returns. To ensure a high level of innovation performance by industry, there are extensive funding programmes at regional, national and international level that help you to turn your research questions and ideas into reality with as little effort as possible.

As an applied research centre, CEST can support you.

As a COMET-centre, we offer funded projects that can be realised at short notice (from the idea to the project start in less than 8 weeks), in which you benefit both from public funding and the expertise of scientific partners.

Your advantage is obvious:
Extensive projects can be implemented with less funding and there is no risk that the project will be rejected due to a program being oversubscribed. We would be happy to advise you on the possibilities of carrying out a project with us as part of the COMET program.

Furthermore, we also have extensive experience in the conception, application and management of funded projects, such as FFG, regional funding (Lower Austria & Upper Austria) and EU projects.

There is a wide variety of funding schemes, ranging from small-scale projects to large-scale projects lasting several years.

We also support SMEs with little experience in this field in the formulation and preparation of their applications. We would like to invite you to discuss your possibilities and opportunities with us.

We would particularly like to draw your attention to the Innovation Voucher.

With the Innovation Voucher worth up to

max. 10.000 €, for small and medium enterprises (SME)

from Austria. There is a possibility to apply for funding in a quick and easy way.

More information under Innovation Voucher | FFG.
