Plug & Play Innovation Box for the company’s success


Innovating is changing: new products or services need to be developed faster and become more successful in the marketplace. With the new Plug & Play Innovation Box of the Green Tech Cluster, all companies can achieve this in just a few minutes. 20 handpicked tools according to the principles of Design Thinking and Lean Startup are prepared for immediate implementation.

Within the European Union, Austria ranks second only to R&D spending in terms of GDP, but only ranks 10th overall in terms of innovation. There is still a lot of potential here, especially the innovation processes have to be more effective.


Tools for faster market success
This is the aim of the new “Plug & Play Innovation Box” of the Green Tech Cluster. This toolbox contains 20 handpicked tools that the cluster uses in its day-to-day work to develop more than 90 innovation projects to date. These help to recognize market trends earlier, to develop creative ideas, to integrate customers more often and faster, and to implement new business models. The tools such as Design Thinking, TRIZ, Lean Canvas, St. Gallen Business Model Navigator or Innovation Heroes are immediately usable with instructions and digital templates.


Satisfied users
“We were a test customer right from the start and are enthusiastic about the user-oriented compilation”, says Bernhard Pürschl, Product Manager of KNAPP AG. “With the cluster’s new Innovation Box, we solve problems faster and generate more ideas,” adds Herbert Spitzer, Managing Director of Spitzer GesmbH.
