The Lower Austrian project House of Digitalization (best practice shared in INNO Industry) is an example of new solutions that link know-how carriers and companies. In times of the Corona crisis, it has proved particularly effective and enabled to react quickly to new needs.

The digitalization strategy of the province  of Lower Austria is designed to support  companies, qualify employees, and raise  awareness among a broader section of  the population. The flagship project is the  “House of Digitalization”. It is an important  interface for the digital transformation  and is currently being set up as an interactive  platform with personalized services  and an automated suggestion system for  networking  Lower Austrian companies with  research and educational institutions and  as a meeting place for the interested public  in the field of digitalization. 

The “construction” takes place in three  steps. In a first step, which was completed  in 2018, digital nodes were set up in  St. Pölten, Krems, Tulln, Wieselburg,  Klosterneuburg, and Wiener Neustadt,  where specific competencies already  existing in the state are bundled and  networked with each other. The second  step was to build a “virtual house” with ten  levels. As a third step, a real house of digitalization will be built in Tulln by 2022.
