Silicon Alps is an Austrian technology and innovation cluster for electronic based systems.

The Silicon Alps Electronic Cluster is a public-private partnership that brings together Austrian players from industry, science and public authorities to develop and position the electronics and microelectronics sector with a regional focus on the locations Carinthia and Styria. The Silicon Alps cluster regards itself as a long-term strategic alliance and a tool for cooperative, efficient and business-oriented location development.



In the context of Europe’s microelectronics industry, the industrial location Austria provides a highly sophisticated industrial profile, which also reveals major contributions in attaining European goals in the field of microelectronic and nanoelectronic components and systems.



The Silicon Alps cluster regards itself as a network initiative, and directly supports the »Silicon Austria« initiative by the bmvit – the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology – and the technology platform ECSEL-Austria. At the European level, the Silicon Alps cluster replaces the former me2c – [micro] electronic cluster association.
