Innovation Corner: Digital Transformation

A museum stage for forward-looking innovations from Austria

What technical innovations are currently underway? What ideas and inventions from Austria could change our world? The new exhibition series showcases current cutting-edge developments.
The new exhibition format Innovation Corner gives Austrian start-ups and innovative businesses a stage for presenting pioneering technologies. Visitors can learn what innovations are currently being explored and what new ideas are being developed in Austria and get exclusive previews of the first prototypes. In regularly changing presentations, visitors can gain multifaceted insights into a wide range of innovative industry sectors and experience how dynamic, diversified and hands-on the STEM field (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) is, including as an economic and employment sector.

The first exhibition series of the Innovation Corner was implemented in collaboration with Business Upper Austria, the Upper Austrian government’s location agency. Within the one-year line-up, new topics from Business Upper Austria’s #upperVISION2030 strategic programme and/or from the Upper Austrian Innovation Award were highlighted every four months. Both publicly funded projects and young start-ups will be represented; what they have in common is that they make promising contributions to research and industry in Upper Austria with their interdisciplinary research approach and sophisticated ideas.

Digital Transformation
The digital transformation confronts us with many innovations and challenges, while offering enormous potential for sustainable innovations. What is currently being worked on in Austrian start-ups and research centres? What new ideas and groundbreaking technologies are being developed in domestic companies? The Innovation Corner of the Technisches Museum Wien provided exclusive insights and showcased success stories of Upper Austrian companies in the field of digitization. It became clear how diverse and broad the solutions and application areas can be. How can we store digital data in the long term, even without environmentally harmful energy consumption? How can we optimize production processes and quality assurance? And how can digital solutions support emergency services in a disaster scenario? Visitors could experience first-hand the creative and inventive power of Upper Austria in the Innovation Corner.
