Nationally Funded Programs

The Materials Center Leoben (MCL) is consistently applying for nationally funded projects in different calls like "Intelligent Production" (ACINTECH, HighTempCFK, and Tube Target) or our successful proposal at the FWF for „Bridging length scales in piezoceramics for commercial actuators“ within the "Translational Research Program". The MCL participates as coordinator as well as project partner.

Based on successful national research programs we could achieve new international industrial and scientific partners for additional projects. For example, within an FWF-project we cooperated with research groups from the University of Florida and the University College Dublin. Because of the variety of national funding programs and different target groups we are allowed to cooperate with small companies as well as with big businesses.
