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.
