With a total endowment of around €146 million, the Fonds Zukunft Österreich is providing an important boost for Austria as a research location.

“Today’s announcement of the distributions from the Fonds Zukunft Österreich is particularly good news for researchers in Austria. It allows us to set new accents in research funding, continue forward-looking funding offers and also expand cooperation with other funding institutions.
