Austria is rated fifth in terms of its innovativeness. Ireland, Finland, Luxembourg and Netherlands are ranked as the top four. Germany placed eighth. Vienna leads the ING Innovation Index in the ranking of the Austrian federal states. The ING Innovation Index analyzes and assesses the current level of innovative strength of the 19 countries in the Eurozone on the basis of nine indicators.                                                         

Ireland’s first place ranking is due to its strong start-up scene, well educated people and the highest level of employment in high-tech businesses. Austria’s good ranking is mainly driven by its investments in research and development. In relation to its gross domestic product, Austria invests the most in R&D among the Eurozone countries. Austria also scores high with respect to patent applications and the potential of its youth.

Austria: Pacesetter for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Intelligent production, cyber-physical production systems and more are only just a few of the many facets of the industrial future. The notorious reality of assembly line work in production is a relic of the past. Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are characterised by a high level of automation and a continuous exchange of data. Large mechanical engineering companies and automobile manufacturers are already relying on highly interconnected production lines with industrial robots and smart control systems along the entire value chain. Austrian companies and research institutions are intensively working on developing such concepts and ultimately making them suitable for broad-based use on the part of small and medium-sized firms.
