In the Year 2004, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) started to implement a research program on nanotechnology. It had the objectives to broaden the basis for cooperation between science and industry, to strengthen research competences in - for Austria important - field of applications and to foster technology transfer and economic exploitation of nanotechnology.
With a budget of about 70 Million Euros for the years 2004 to 2011, the Austrian Nano Initiative funded research clusters within the interface between science and industry. The BMVIT has now developed a research strategy, with the goal to integrate nanotechnology in a new research program on production technologies ("Production of the Future"). Austria is also very successful within the European funding programmes. Within the 6th and 7th Framework Programme of the EU, Austrian partners were financed with a total funding volume of 30 Million Euros.
In March 2010, the Austrian government adopted the Austrian Nano-Action Plan. In this context, the BMVIT funds projects in nanosafety within the frame of an own research programme and supports the project NanoTrust. The aim of this research project is to continually survey, analyse and summarize the state of knowledge of the potential health and environmental risks of nanotechnology.
