voestalpine has had a longstanding partnership with the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz. The voestalpine Art and Technology Grant, also known as [the next idea] primarily selects sustainable projects that voestalpine sponsors within the scope of this partnership.

Project ideas with suggestions on improvements relative to the future-oriented topics of energy, mobility, and access can be submitted. “Project 80+1” also addressed future-oriented issues; this project was a significant part of voestalpine’s activities as the main sponsor of the events surrounding “Linz the 2009 Cultural Capital of Europe.“

From September 2012, the company has been also the main sponsor for the “voestalpine Klangwolke” event, an open-air performance that has been taking place since 1979. This event is a bridge between the Linz Bruckner Festival and the Ars Electronica Festival, and its popularity brings in 100,000 visitors. During the period under review, various longstanding collaborations and sponsorship projects were carried out in Austria, for example, “Kulturwerk,” a media collaboration with ORF, participation in the “Long Night of the Museums,” and support for the new “Musiktheater” in Linz.

Additionally, voestalpine supports regional cultural institutions and events in the towns and cities, where its companies are located.
