Research, Development & Innovation

We live in an era of rapid technological progress. TÜV AUSTRIA understands its role as a technological partner: New technologies are actively supported, because they will only be accepted by the economy and society if they are safe, controllable and environmentally compatible.
The systematic development of new services that help new technologies gain acceptance in business and society is a decisive success factor for the TÜV AUSTRIA Group. We identify relevant trends at an early stage and consistently derive solutions from them that enable us to support our customers even better in meeting their quality and safety requirements sustainably and economically. In this way, we ensure the long-term competitiveness of TÜV AUSTRIA and create added value for our customers.
