KIRAS - Security Research
The Austrian Security Research Programme KIRAS supports national research projects whose results contribute to the security of all members of society.
For the current phase of the programme, KIRAS focusses on funding activities related to protection of critical infrastructures.
The Austrian security research programme KIRAS implements three mutually complementary instruments. They range from probing actions to cooperative research and innovation projects and R&D support actions.
The Austrian Security Research programme KIRAS is owned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism (BMLRT).
The programme management, especially the project management, is within the responsibility of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) on behalf of the BMLRT.
