Finance & funding

We assist you in finding and implementing the appropriate measures for you and your project. We advise you on whether and how your project is eligible for funding and which support options are suitable for you.

A wealth of innovation and investment support is available for companies at regional, national and international level. Funding is available for different needs, categories and durations. Innovation Salzburg keeps track of the various different grants and tenders, so that you always have an overview of what is available. We’ll help you identify and implement the right options for you and your project. We’ll also advise you on whether your project is eligible for funding or support and, if so, how to apply.

In our consultation, we draw on regional, national, and EU-wide funding programs. To stay up to date, we cooperate closely with the State of Salzburg, the Austrian promotional bank (austria wirtschaftsservice, aws), the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), and the Austrian Hotel and Tourism Bank (ÖHT).
