The bat2share project aims at the development of charging infrastructure for sustainable zero-emission e-mobility in Austria. In the project we develop both hardware and software needed for e-bike battery sharing.

bat2share is supported by the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund and implemented by Silicon Austria Labs together with two Austrian SMEs, Erfideo from Graz and GP Motion from Villach.


The project "Digineuron" has been dedicated to improving the performance of embedded systems for AI algorithms by orders of magnitude within a limited energy budget. The result - a hardware accelerator for AI in 65nm technology - sets an international benchmark in low power consumption and performance efficiency.

Cooperative research with SAL

The unique SAL cooperation model is characterized by the rapid implementation of innovative ideas and offers partners access to infrastructure and know-how along the entire value chain of electronic based systems.

With this model, we enable our partners to implement their research idea not only quickly and unbureaucratically, but we also finance 50% of the project costs. The industry partner contributes 25% in cash and 25% in in-kind services.

The IP rules for all our projects are in accordance with the European state aid law and every cooperation project is publicly and anonymously advertised for four weeks to enable other suited partners to take part.

SAL's vision for a better future

With the pillars “EBS for Green”, “EBS for Austria” and “EBS for Europe”, SAL wants to further strengthen the Austrian and European EBS ecosystem and become a one-stop-shop for research in the field of electronic based systems.

Silicon Austria Labs - Your research center for electronic based systems

Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) is Austria's top research center for electronic based systems (EBS), which are the technological backbone of digitization. At three locations (Graz, Villach, Linz), SAL is conducting research in the areas of Microsystems, Sensor Systems, Power Electronics, Intelligent Wireless Systems and Embedded Systems to develop future-oriented solutions for industrial production, health, energy, mobility and safety.

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 value chain. Cooperative projects are co-financed by SAL and enable a fast and unbureaucratic project start. SAL is thus shaping the high-tech locations Austria and Europe and "unfolds the future".

Join our team and help us shape the technologies of the future

At Silicon Austria Labs, 300 researchers and employees from 40 nations work on more than 100 research projects in the field of electronic based systems. We develop innovative technologies from chip to intelligent system. We are looking for enthusiastic people to join our team and help us create a smarter and greener future.

Slot-die coating at SAL

With slot-die coating, we can print at very high speeds over very long areas. It can be used for e.g. lighting such as organic LEDs or also solar cells in which you need to print large areas in a cost-effective manner. Our colleague Daniel explains the process in the video.
