The Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) has been enabling businesses and researchers to move forward with their breakthrough projects in the field of digital technologies for more than 20 years.
The European Next Generation Internet (NGI) Initiative led to the interactive process for the NGI Scenario Report – The Internet for People 2040 in Austria. Participating experts from a broad spectrum of disciplines thus laid the foundation for the calls that are presented in this brochure.
A core guiding principle in this context is the "connected surfer" scenario with the proposal to build and grow flexible ecosystems for collaborative creation among diverse actors. The common objective is to increase the development and deployment of European digital technology solutions in key technological fields, and to expand their use in Austria.
It is obvious that the interactions between these technologies and people, society, and climate protection are playing an increasingly important role. A wide range of disciplines are being involved and sustainable solutions are found for societal challenges such as climate change. The national promotion measures are intended to raise the international profile of companies and research institutions, increase involvement in pertinent European programmes and initiatives such as Horizon Europe, the Green Deal, and the European Partnerships, and thus contribute to shaping Europe's future.
This publication showcases projects that have successfully addressed these challenges.
