Clusters - active networks

Together I am stronger!


Together I am stronger.

The Standortagentur Tirol clusters are the ideal platforms to initiate joint projects between companies as well as between companies and research institutes and educational establishments. Why? Because they have the most efficient means to drive knowledge and technology transfer as well as the development of innovations.

What potential does your project have?

You have an idea for a project but you are not sure whether this idea can or should be implemented or whether you have the right project partners? Use the clusters to assess the feasibility as well as the opportunities and risks of your project and to find project partners in business, science, R&D and the public sector.

  • Confidential and independent analysis of your project idea
  • Substantiation and first briefing of vague project ideas
  • Search for and networking with potential partners in business and science
  • Elaboration of your project idea with industry and technology experts and/or selected potential partners during a coordinated brainstorming session
  • Assistance and support at the start of a cross-industry or cross-cluster project

Assistance and coordination of projects.

You have decided to go ahead with your project idea? Use the clusters to assess the sustainability and added value of your project and to implement it.

  • Advice on sustainability of projects
  • Funding advice
  • Project acquisition and initialisation
  • Marketing after project completion
  • Introduction of follow-up projects, expanding the network involved if required

Technology discussions and brainstorming sessions

You intend to use or develop a new technology or you already have a new technology but its potential still has to be evaluated? Use the clusters to assess whether and what kind of future there is for a specific technology, whether it is economically feasible, and which technologies in specific fields will be in demand in the future.

  • Assessment of the business potential of a new technology
  • Discussion of the idea or technology with potential customers and development partners
  • Assistance with (cross-industry) technology transfer
  • Needs-based search for partners in business, research and the public sector (regional, national and international)
  • Networking with relevant companies, R&D institutes, institutions and cluster members
  • Access to international networks (industry-specific and cross-industry)
