Security / Technology

The Safety Pin provides the framework for the coordinated implementation of an Austrian security and defence research programme which consists of the research support programmes KIRAS (for civil and dual-use applications) and FORTE (for defence research).
 With the help of the international technology transfer the share of Austrian technology in exports is to be increased, jobs are to be created and preserved, and Austria’s position as an economic, industrial and tourism location is to be maintained for the long term.
