Automobile clusters in Austria

Excellent examples in the automotive sector are ACstyria and the Upper Austrian Automobile Cluster with about 420 members.

At ACStyria, 220 innovative partners and suppliers in the field of clean mobility focus on ECO powertrains, ECO materials and ECO design as well as smart manufacturing. The Upper Austrian Automobile Cluster concentrates on future-oriented lightweight construction for cars. However, smaller-scale initiatives such as A2LT – Austrian Advanced Lightweight Technology, AustriaTech or the lightweight construction platform “ECO-Materials" rely on achieving strength through cooperation.

The competence centers of the COMET funding initiative (Competence Centers for Excellent Technologies) stand out due to their brilliant research results. In the automotive sector, Virtual Vehicle, the LKR Light Metals Competence Center Ranshofen and the K-AI Competence Center for Automobile and Industrial Electronics have become established partners of industry.

The research activities carried out by Virtual Vehicle focus on the integrated and efficient development of vehicles based on interdisciplinary methods and comprehensive system simulation, also encompassing the entire vehicle. The result should be a convincing vehicle featuring greater comfort and safety, lightweight construction and alternative drive systems. Some 200 experts at Virtual Vehicle from across the globe are working on behalf of premium automobile manufacturers. The LEC (Large Engines Competetence Center), the K1 Center (in Polymer Engineering Science) and the two K2 centers (Mobility SVT and Digital Mobility Context-Embedded Vehicle Technologies) were set up to implement the Virtual Vehicle Project.
