LIT Calls.

Twice a year, the Linz Institute of Technology (LIT) announces a "Call for Proposals" in support of cutting-edge research. Projects can be submitted in different project categories.

There are also special calls featuring specific objectives.



LIT Office



There are currently no open calls.

The next LIT Call is expected to open at the beginning of 2023 (deadline expected in early May).
