How We Can Work Together

Cooperative Research

Cooperative research – in this case, the financing of the research project is divided equally.


For example, one or more industrial partners can jointly finance 50% of the research project, while the remaining 50% is provided through funding or own resources of Virtual Vehicle Research GmbH.

Contract Research

Are you looking for customized solutions?


For this very purpose, we offer contract research. We determine the questions and objectives of the research project together at the beginning of our collaboration.

This allows us to facilitate knowledge transfer that specifically addresses the needs and challenges of our industrial partners.

Funded Research

We collaborate with a variety of national and international funding agencies to initiate and advance innovative research projects.

Long-standing partners in the field of research funding include FFG, HEU, and many others.



VIRTUAL VEHICLE focuses on the following programs:

Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the EU’s key funding programme for research and innovation with a budget of €95.5 billion.

Chips JU

Chips Joint Undertaking (Chips JU) is a European tri-partite partnership that is boosting the development and adoption of advanced nano-electronic chip technologies and systems manufactured in Europe.

Europe’s Rail

Europe’s Rail is the sector’s second large-scale European research joint undertaking to seek to focus innovation efforts and accelerate the creation of market-driven solutions by integrating new and advanced technologies into novel rail tools.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are the European Union’s reference programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training.

National Funding – FFG

The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) is the national funding agency for industrial research, development, and technology in Austria.

National Funding – SFG

SFG accelerates the success of Styrian companies: Through the abundance and quality of services – from funding and financing to consulting – SFG supports the faster growth of Styrian firms.

Europe Defense Fund (EDF)

The Fund promotes cooperation among companies and research actors of all sizes and geographic origin in the Union, in research and development of state-of-the-art and interoperable defence technology and equipment.
