impressive support

Service center Innovation

We assist companies that are based in Salzburg or wish to settle there with our services: from settlement to innovation and investment, and to advice on protecting intellectual property rights. As enthusiastic representatives of the location, we help to convince skilled workers to come to Salzburg. Our services are free of charge.


We support Salzburg companies in all industries to lead innovations in the company from the idea to success in the market. If you can answer the following questions predominantly with yes, you are in the right place with your project:

  • Will the project achieve new opportunities in the company?
  • Does the project present an economic and/or technical challenge for the company?
  • Will the project create added value in the state of Salzburg?
  • Is an economic added value expected through the project? (e.g. job security or creation, increase in efficiency, etc.)
  • Is knowledge from experts outside the company needed for the project? (e.g. from research, technical expertise, expertise in intellectual property, market research, etc.)
