Key areas

By focusing on key thematic areas, the clusters aim to overcome future economic, ecological and social challenges, thereby strengthening local businesses as well as Tyrol as an attractive business location with a high quality of living.

Tyrol stands out in the global competition between markets and regions: not only is Tyrol one of the strongest tourist destinations in the world with the corresponding technological and economical competence. Tyrol has also become a pulsating technology and health region.

The connection between the business and scientific areas of strength in Tyrol in the skills triangle of technology, health and tourism holds great potential: for local businesses and research institutes as well as for Tyrol as an attractive business location with a high quality of living.

"Key Enabling Technologies" play an ever increasing role throughout the world, in Tyrol's business and science environment, too: material technologies, risk and disaster management, nano technologies, micro and nano electronics, photonics, materials, biotechnology and new forms of production are important drivers of future innovations where Tyrolean business and science have developed far-reaching skills.

Thanks to the business and scientific areas of strength in Tyrol in the skills triangle of technology, health and tourism and their skills in key enabling technologies, Tyrol has realised that future "grand challenges" (such as global climate change, scarcity of energy and natural resources, demographic changes, health, social stability, food, mobility) should not be regarded as threats but instead as economic high-growth areas where local businesses and research institutes can achieve long-term success with innovative technologies, products and services.

In order to make these high-growth markets useful for companies and research institutes in Tyrol, Standortagentur Tirol's clusters not only support their members with their cluster services, but they also set key thematic areas.
