Researchers at AIT are among the top in their fields. This is reflected, among other things, in the high impact in scientific journals and the large number of EU research projects acquired.

An essential basis for the success of the AIT is its highly trained and motivated staff. The AIT Group currently employs around 1,400 people. They come from well over 40 countries. The performance of AIT employees can be seen from the annual Scientific & Performance Indicators: The impact factor, which is a measure of the quality of scientific performance, rose to a record value of 1,348 in 2021 - both the number of publications in scientifically referenced journals and the impact factor per publication have increased significantly. At 33, the number of post-doctoral fellows at the AIT remains at a high level. The same applies to the number of patents granted (2021: 35).

Many Ingenious Partners who head AIT research groups are among the absolute leaders in their fields.
