Science City: Salzburg’s new research and corporate cluster

W. Haas, ITG, Prof. Hüsing, Prof. Diwald © Neumayr

The city has raised its profile as a center of research and technological development. One reason is the Science City Itzling, in which the spirit of research combines with entrepreneurship. 100 companies including 90 firms with 800 employees focusing on IT and ICT operate there. More than 270 researchers and teachers as well as 1,000 students actively work in the academic institutions of the Science City.

 “A pulsating center for knowledge and technology is emerging here from the interaction of companies, start-ups, teaching and research and the already existing laboratories”, says Walter Haas, Head of Salzburg’s innovation and technology promotion agency ITG. A functioning research value chain is being established here, from basic and applied research to know-how transfer to companies and the public. Many projects are already in the pipeline, all of them on the interfaces to various disciplines such as geoinformatics, material research, data science and informatics.
