FFG (Austria)

The Austrian Research Promotion Agency is the national funding institution for applied research and development in Austria. FFG offers a comprehensive range of services for Austrian enterprises, research institutions and researchers – from the management of public funding programmes to consulting services in all phases of technology development and innovation, from support for integration into European research programmes and networks to the promotion of Austria’s interests at the European and the international level.

Equal opportunities for women and men in research are an important management concern at FFG – therefore gender mainstreaming is implemented in all fields of activity. Gender criteria are part of the evaluation criteria in all of FFG’s research funding programmes. Additionally, Talents - FEMtech Research Projects (in German only) is a programme that specifically targets the promotion of gender-relevant research.

FFG is also a member of the cross-organisational genderAG Working Group: the goal of the working group is to increase the visibility of each organisation’s gender mainstreaming activities in order to promote the topic of equal opportunities for women and men in the research world. The working group was established in 2007 and includes experts from Austrian Cooperative Research (ACR), the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and Joanneum Research (JR).
