Good News: FFG funding program Impact Innovation is now available for large organizations!


The Impact Innovation funding program of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) now supports social innovation even more broadly: Since October 1st, 2020, large organizations can also submit and solve social problems innovatively.

Impact Innovation: Funding for smart ideas

Have you found a problem for which there is still no optimal solution? Then create your own solution! The FFG funding program “Impact Innovation” encourages people to find or test ideas using innovation methods, and pays half of the costs. Up to 75,000 euros are available, regardless of the topic or industry.

It is important to have a process in which all those involved are involved in order to develop an effective solution from new ideas. However, applicants do not have to be innovation professionals! You can get support from experts, Impact Innovation promotes that too.

Submitting is easy: continuously online and without a deadline. More information on the submission process: www.ffg.at/programm/impactinnovation
For projects with a strong social component, but for which part of the funding is missing, the FFG also supports with the new pilot line “Social Crowdfunding” with know-how and tools for the successful crowdfunding campaign: www.ffg.at/socialcrowdfunding

Of course NPOs are also entitled to submit applications!
