Boost for Upper Austria

Targeted research funding

Activate the digital transformation

"The digital change brings tremendous opportunities for Upper Austria's economic and innovation location. On the one hand, there are many companies with a strong degree of automation and a solid digitization strategy or roadmap. On the the hand, many companies are still at the very beginning of their digitalization efforts. In order to support companies with different degrees of digital maturity, the funding  was specifically targeted at two key areas”, explains LH-Stv. Dr. Strugl.

Two key aspects

  • DigiFIT: is intended to facilitate the start of digitisation and a rapid digital change process for industrial companies.
