Austrian Innovation

Science and Innovation is a part of Austria as much as Mozart, Viennese waltz and Schnitzel. Austrian companies operate successfully around the world, Austrian scientists work and research at the most prestigious universities in Europe, Asia and the U.S., and Austria has been constantly increasing its funding for the Research & Development (R&D) and innovation sectors (2.8% of its GDP in 2014).

It is Austria's mission to help achieve a sustainable economic environment and a society low in emissions, resource-efficient and ecologically sound. Reflecting its commitment to these goals, Austrian companies have been able to establish a remarkable lead in green technologies and positioned the country as one of the world leaders in ecological construction in general and in the technology of passive house building in particular.

The Office of Science and Technology Austria, in Washington DC, is working to bridge research and innovation between Austria and North America.
