Werkstätte Wattens currently hosts about 60 businesses from a range of industries. This variety facilitates a cross-disciplinary exchange of knowledge, promotes technology transfer and creates value.
As a startup and business centre, Werkstätte Wattens will maintain this industry diversity.
At the same time, there will be an additional focus on entrepreneurship and innovation in Alpine Technologies, based on the geographical and economic conditions that Tyrol offers as a business location & market.
With the opening of the Alpine Tech Innovation Hub in October 2019, an exclusive place will be designated for this specialized field. The Alpine Tech Innovation Hub at Werkstätte Wattens creates a new industry meeting place for established companies, international experts and young entrepreneurs. The hub offers programmes, innovation impulses and contacts to network partners for the sustainable further development, digitalisation and global implementation of technologies and business models.
