Silicon Alps Cluster

Original name: 
Silicon Alps Cluster
Inffeldgasse 25f
Graz, Steiermark 8010

The Silicon Alps Electronic Cluster is a public-private partnership that brings together Austrian players from industry, science and public authorities to develop and position the electronics and microelectronics sector with a regional focus on the locations Carinthia and Styria. The Silicon Alps cluster regards itself as a long-term strategic alliance and a tool for cooperative, efficient and business-oriented location development.


Silicon Alps combines the sectors of industry, research and development/training and the public sector under the overall objective of strategic location development in the Southern Austria region. One of its activities is the introduction and intensification of CLUSTER FOCUS GROUPS.

Silicon Alps forms these groups, which jointly coordinate on topics and challenges and work on solutions and activities to address them. Cluster focus groups are generated so that a project or core theme can be handled as efficiently as possible, and can be staffed with qualified experts from research and industry. After the successful foundation of a CLUSTER FOCUS GROUP, it is then populated with interested and competent cooperating partners from the cluster, and works collectively to define its objectives and the necessary measures to achieve them.

Each group is headed by a team member who works in close cooperation with an executive sponsor from the cluster, while the Silicon Alps Cluster acts as the organisational and executive sponsor, providing specialist leadership.
