Our goal is to promote Tyrol as a worldwide leader in Alpine Solutions by fostering innovation and leveraging the existing strengths of Alpine Technologies.

International Innovation and Entrepreneurship Centre for Alpine Technologies

The Alpine Tech Innovation Hub is an initiative by Werkstätte Wattens and Standortagentur Tirol.

It is a platform for regional and international exchange and innovation. It provides cross-industry programmes, expert input and opportunities for companies with a focus on Alpine Solutions to cooperate with startups. Year-round networking activities with research partners, acceleration programmes and flexible implementation directly in the hub help to sustainably strengthen the innovative and competitive power of all participants, as well as the region as a whole.

The hub promotes technologies developed in Tyrol that have the potential to be applied internationally and across industries.
