ABOUT SMART AND XECS
Xecs and SMART are two Eureka Clusters. Eureka clusters are industry communities that organise calls for projects to implement R&D projects with international partners. The FFG provides funding for the Austrian participants in collaborative and market-oriented R&D projects. Note that in the consortia, project participants decide for themselves on the project content and scope.
