Worldwide network

Around 700 employees in 70 companies around the world are working in the Group’s research and development sector. By combining and linking the expertise available within the Group across divisional boundaries, it is possible to develop system solutions for concrete customer needs and requirements.

Another key to success is the global network and the collaboration with external R&D partners, such as customers and suppliers. In the area of application-oriented fundamental research, voestalpine relies on the expertise and resources of partners in the sciences, such as universities, research institutes, competence centers, and Christian Doppler Laboratories.

voestalpine makes a major contribution to academic research not only through its collaboration in R&D projects but also through its financial participation in competence centers and Christan Doppler Laboratories as well as by proposing and supporting endowed professorships. In the past three years, three professorships at Austrian universities were initiated and supported.
