Support of the partner ecosystem in combating the blatant shortage of skilled workers

“In times of digitalization and Industry 4.0, education is of ever increasing importance for both SMEs and large industrial enterprises.”

The digital transformation in Austria can only be successfully implemented if the necessary qualifications and competences are taught and a suitable environment is created. For this reason, this is one of the central core themes of the Silicon Alps Cluster.


Despite the heterogeneity of the cluster’s cooperation partners, global players and SMEs have one thing in common: they are all looking for qualified specialists. Therefore, Silicon Alps started the development, conception and implementation of a strategy for more professionals in the field of electronic based systems. As the generation of skilled workers are a key factor for the location development of Carinthia and Styria, initiatives against skills shortage are essential to strengthen and expand competitiveness in the southern region of Austria.

how can we help you?

If you have any questions, contact us or one of our team members.

Few areas in our day-to-day life manage without products and components from the microelectronics, electronics or mechatronics industry. This, in turn, is a strong motor and an opportunity for the entire supplier industry. In my opinion, it is the suppliers, i.e. the small and medium-sized enterprises, that will benefit most from the microelectronics cluster Carinthia-Styria. The cluster is a platform that supports and encourages us suppliers to develop further and build new capabilities. For many this is even a stepping stone to access new sectors and markets.
