Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) is Austria's top research center for Electronics and Software Based Systems (ESBS). At three locations (Graz, Villach, Linz), more than 300 employees are working on future-oriented solutions for industrial production, health, energy, mobility, safety and more.

SAL brings together key players from industry, science and research and thus valuable expertise and know-how and conducts cooperative, application-oriented research along the ESBS value chain. Cooperative projects (in accordance with European state aid law) are co-financed by SAL and enable a fast and unbureaucratic project start. SAL is thus shaping the high-tech location Austria and Europe and unfolding the future.
