3 Years of Funding Initiative for Computational Mathematics in Austria

Authors:   Peter Kerschl, Alexander Pogány


The funding initiative ModSim Computational Mathematics started in 2008. In 2010 there was the third call for project-proposals. This paper describes the results from the three calls and the comparison with respect to the temporal and financial outcome from the three calls. Also, the topics and contribution of different proposers are shown. Each year the number of proposals increased. The requested funding has increased with the announced available money for funding. At the same time, the size of the funded projects has decreased. Also the request for funding of big companies has increased from 37% to 76%, but their success-rate is lower than for the smaller companies. The sum of the funding asked for was around 19 Mio ?. In total around 9 Mio ? have been announced for the projects and 6.4 Mio ? were decided for funding.
