Open Innovation

We explicitly pursue an open innovation approach: We complement our own expertise with the know-how of our partners from research and science and invest specifically in emerging business startups.

The TÜV AUSTRIA Group regularly and intensively discusses its innovation strategy with leading figures from industry, research and science in the formats “Open Innovation Day” and “Innovation Advisory Board”.

Open Innovation Day

In the fall of 2023, the Open Innovation Day will take place for the first time: This event will bring together responsible persons for research & development and/or innovation of key Austrian companies from industry and infrastructure, representatives of universities and research institutions as well as stakeholders of TÜV AUSTRIA.
The exclusive group of participants meets to exchange ideas, discuss and network: Current challenges for innovators are addressed in an open innovation approach and possible solutions are explored together.

Innovation advisory board

Between 2017 and 2022, high-ranking representatives from companies and universities met once a year in the Innovation Advisory Board to contribute their expertise as innovation and technology leaders. This intensive exchange ensured that TÜV AUSTRIA’s future-oriented focus corresponds to actual needs and challenges.

Impulse aus dem Leading Innovation Band 6: Corporate Sustainability
  • Es braucht einen Evolutionsdruck damit es zu nachhaltigen Veränderungen kommt, der ist aber derzeit noch viel zu klein: Grüne Lösungen werden zu wenig nachgefragt. Ein hinausinnovieren wird nicht genug sein, wir müssen uns als Menschen grundlegend verändern und dabei den Nutzen als Motivation ins Zentrum stellen.

    Dr. Stefan Haas | CEO TÜV AUSTRIA Group

  • Nachhaltige Produktansätze im Unternehmen zu verfolgen, hängt stark mit der Veränderung des Geschäftsmodells zusammen. Wir beschäftigen uns damit, jedoch nicht, weil unser normales Geschäft sonst nicht mehr möglich ist, sondern weil wir wissen, dass die Nachhaltigkeit der Produkte unsere persönliche und geschäftliche Zukunft mitbestimmen.
