Background & policy context: 

The Austrian Climate and Energy Fund aims at supporting Austria's innovative technological developments in industry and research which both in a short- and a medium-term perspective interconnect already initiated developments, complement them and enforce marketability.

Strategic Objectives: 

Funding efforts especially focus on

  • ambitious development projects with high potential for CO2 reduction;
  • integration of the drive train within the vehicle;
