Flagship Region Manufacturing Industries Upper Austria

The complete decarbonisation of the European industry pursued by the EU poses multiple challenges which can only be overcome by creating supra-regional and multi-disciplinary innovation structures and the system-overarching bundling of single measures in the framework of an overall strategy.

OÖ4Industry aims at establishing Upper Austria as an international visible flagship region for energy-efficient, renewable production making use of innovative, Austrian energy technologies.Viable system solutions will be identified and assessed technically, economically, socially, legally and ecologically; a time and financial plan for the implementation of the overall strategy will be worked out. As an overarching, innovative instrument, a living lab required for the coordination of the single measures in context with the implementation of the flagship region will be elaborated and described.
