aws has been successfully participating in EU projects as a partner and a project manager since 2006. These projects are mainly classified into the areas of innovation, digitisation, creative business and transdisciplinarity.
Among others, participating in European projects strategically contributes to an improvement of aws’s areas of activity in the following ways:
- Increased use of the European market for transnational marketing of Austrian funding programmes, research results and technologies
- Increased impact potential of aws programmes
- Co-shaping the frameworks of European innovation programmes (i.e. funding priorities)
- Forming strategic partnerships and exchanging good practices
aws is always informed about current issues and relevant funding programmes in other EU countries because aws participates in EU projects. This knowledge will directly benefit Austrian entrepreneurs in the long term as well.
