All suggested solutions can be implemented in Vorarlberg. The three strategic directions of thrust are innovation, intelligence and networking.

This is exactly the kind of project we were looking for and we have found it," says Martin Ohneberg, President of the Federation of Austrian Industry Vorarlberg.
