The LIT Factory is subsidized as part of the 21st call for the "Produktion der Zukunft – Pilotfabriken 4.0". Funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology, the program is organized by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency. Federal funding makes up 50% of the total project volume.
The state of Upper Austria and city of Linz have also provided funding for the LIT Factory.
In addition to federal funding, the LIT Factory has financial support from twenty-five companies located in Austria and abroad. These partners contribute 50% of the total project volume by funding or non-cash benefits.
