House of Digitalization
The Lower Austrian ecosystem for digital transformation

House of Digitalization

The "House of Digitalization" is the lighthouse of the Lower Austrian digitalization strategy. It is an important interface for digital transformation and is currently used as an interactive platform with personalized services and an automatic proposal system to network Lower Austrian companies with research and educational institutions, as well as being a meeting point for interested citizens in the field of digitalization.

Step 1. Hubs & networks

As a first step, so called digital hubs were developed (St. Pölten, Krems, Wieselburg, Klosterneuburg, Tulln and Wiener Neustadt), these were closely linked together, as well as connected with other existing networks. Representatives from business, administration as well as research and apprenticeships are bundled in a cross-institutional and Lower Austria-wide competence network. International connections of these hubs should ensure that relevant developments are recognised on time.
