Welcome to RTDS Group

Welcome to RTDS – Moving European Research to the Market
Since March 2014, RTDS is the new name of former RTD Services Vienna. This change reflects the development of a growing company. We are experienced consultants supporting European SMEs, industry, universities and research and technology organisations to secure and manage funding in all steps from the idea to the market. RTDS was the No 1 Austrian SME in FP7 project participation.
Our services include project definition, finding the right funding call, proposal writing as well as implementation and management of research and innovation projects, mainly funded by FP7 and Horizon 2020.
During implementation we focus on intellectual property management, dissemination, communication, production of whiteboard animations and other communication material, as well as consultancy in post-project funding. Finally, we provide our knowledge by means of compact training seminars and interactive workshops.
Watch the RTDS whiteboard animation to get the full picture of our services.
