 Quicker to Market: Putting innovation into practice

What is the secret of success for launching an innovation project? How do you get to the market faster? “It was networking through the Green Tech Cluster that brought everyone together and, in the end, came up with something that was really novel,” explains Roland Pomberger, professor at the Montanuniversität Leoben.

This is why we support our partners from project initiation through co-creation to initial application with pilot customers from the network. And that works for both small and large enterprises.

More than half of our sales come from products in the field of renewable energy and environmental protection. We are very proud to be part of the Green Tech Cluster, which combines the globally recognised strength in innovation of environmental technology companies,” notes Wolfgang Leitner of ANDRITZ AG.

Tools for Success: Data Service Cards

Tools for Success: Innovation, Design Thinking and more.
Each idea must be thought through carefully before it eventually gets on the road to success. Our tools, such as Data Service Cards provide the necessary support. We developed these cards together with the Know-Center. They act as points of inspiration in the development process.
