About RTI Aviation

A glimpse of the Austrian research and innovation landscape in the field of aviation

Between 1999 and 2015, Austria’s public and private sector invested approximately 400 mio Euros in research, technology and innovation projects in the field of aviation. Thereof, nearly 50 mio Euros were earmarked for transnational projects between Germany’s LuFo and Austria’s Take Off funding program.

It is evident that these investments positively impacted the development of the national economic sector and will play a crucial role in the future as well. 

This page focuses on Austria’s 15 years’ dynamic growth and the research, technology and innovation strategy for aviation published in 2015. In addition, the relaunched Austrian research and innovation funding program “Take Off 2015 - 2020” is introduced to offer a glimpse of existing research competencies and facilities. A short description of the Icing Wind Tunnel in Vienna – the world’s largest so far – rounds up the practical explanation.
