Message from the State Ministers
An efficient research landscape, innovative companies and inspired founders form the basis of prosperity and a secure job market in Bavaria. The goal of Bavaria’s research, technology and innovation policy is to maintain and expand Bavaria’s position as a recognised science and business hub among international competition.
Through a collaboration of five strong partners, the Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency (BayFIA) is Bavaria’s central point of contact for all matters related to the promotion of research, technology and transfer.
The five partner institutions of the Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency advise and support small to medium-sized companies and universities in their efforts to acquire funding from the State of Bavaria, the German federal government and the EU, while offering help on issues related to the transfer of knowledge and technology, and patent utilisation. They also promote networking between science and industry stakeholders. The assistance offered includes practical help to develop forward-looking ideas, from research and testing to preparation for a market launch.
Employees are on hand to provide support at both locations in Munich and Nuremberg.
The Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency is a joint initiative of the Bavarian Ministry of Science and the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs.
