We assist our partner ecosystem in addressing the pressing shortage of skilled professionals

About the project

Funding category 2


Power Electronics

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.


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




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.

Elisabeth Berghold, BEd, MBA

HR Development Manager

My occupational life started within the textile branch, there I learned what it means to be a founder. After developing my own brand further, I moved slowly into the adult education field and pedagogics. Thus brought me lately to the amazing area of human resource management and its exciting operations. I was working for a textile corporation as an operational HR-Manager, where I had to serve a specific sales area within Austria, Slovenia, Swiss and Turkey. As well I worked as an HR-Project-Manager globally and cooperate around organisational developments.

In SILICON ALPS Cluster I am responsible for the HR Development of the region. My aim is to enhance the competitive advantages of the electronic based systems industry through strengthening HR.
