Building the process

The development of #upperVISION2030

Developing new methods and future-proofing the existing ones - these are the guiding principles behind the process for the new #upperVISION2030 strategy. Coupled with a new approach focussing on key topics that are important for the future, the Upper Austrian business and research strategy #upperVISION2030 was developed by building on the experience gained from the strategic business and research programme Innovative Upper Austria 2020.

The integration of external experts enriched the internal view of the location partners on Upper Austria during the strategy development process. That is how Fraunhofer ISI was able to integrate international expertise into the process, as well as national expertise through the Industry 4.0 platform and regional expertise through the Upper Austrian Future Academy. Thanks to their expert knowledge, current trends and drivers were able to be identified and integrated into the process. The corresponding strategies "Upper Austrian Jobs 2030", "Energy Leading Region Upper Austria 2050" and "Tourism Strategy 2022" were also taken into account.


The combination of an external, expert-driven strategy development integrated into the Upper Austrian business and research landscape represented by location partners - the employees chamber (AKOÖ), Business Upper Austria, technical universities (FH OÖ), industry chamber (IV OÖ), JKU university in Linz, Upper Austrian Research and the chamber of commerce (WKOÖ) - made it possible to look beyond the borders of Upper Austria.
