LOCATION EDGE THROUGH INNOVATION AND CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT

System competences and individual technologies which give rise to business models make up the uni- queness of the AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology). It represents as it were a whole series of research services for the diverse challenges of the future.


While customers can focus on the day-to-day busi- ness and the short-term future, the top scientists of Europe are working on the technologies of tomorrow. AIT conducts contract research based on the parti- cular company and market needs of the future.


The result are new products, services and business models that make people‘s lives easier, safer and more livable. The Austrian industry benefits from these services in several respects. Firstly, it gets ac- cess to excellent research of European format. Se- condly, companies appreciate AIT as a partner who understands their concerns and challenges. And thirdly, this partner helps them to remain competiti- ve and thus sustainably successful through innovati- ve approaches, products and services. At the inter- face between companies, market access, science and research, AIT thus makes a decisive contribution to the attractiveness and continuous development of Austria as a business and industrial location.
