Funding of Institute of Science and Technology Austria

The long-term financial health of IST Austria relies on four different sources of funding: public funding, national and international research grants, technology licensing, and donations. For the period from 2007 to 2026, the federal government of Austria provides up to EUR 1'280 million in operational funds. Two-thirds are guaranteed while the remaining third is dependent on performance-related criteria such as third-party sources. So far, income from outside sources has exceeded EUR 100 million, including EUR 83 million in research grants and EUR 18.7 million in donations. The state of Lower Austria covers the costs for construction and campus maintenance in the amount of EUR 510 million from 2007 to 2026.
