Silicon Alps is an Austrian technology and innovation cluster for electronic based systems. It 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. Our services are especially geared to SMEs, business founders and cooperation project developments. The Silicon Alps cluster directly supports the »Silicon Austria« initiative by the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology – and the technology platform ECSEL-Austria. At the European level, the Silicon Alps cluster, in alliance with »Silicon Europe«, replaces the former me2c – [micro] electronic cluster association.
