The funding programme wants to accelerate the use of electronic systems and microsystems in new products and applications, thereby steadily enhancing the competitive position of Bavarian businesses and creating new jobs. The funding programme supports the development of new cooperation and the expansion of existing ones in which businesses and research institutions jointly work on application-oriented research and development. R&D joint projects of Bavarian partners from various application sectors receive support.

The VDI/VDE-IT acts as project management.
