The network of the Holzcluster Steiermark allows business, research and politics to grow together into a strong ecosystem. In this way, the Holzcluster promotes its members and develops the industry for a competitive future. Internationalisation is an important success factor for the timber industry. That is why Holzcluster Steiermark, with its managing director Christian Tippelreither, carries out regular market analyses and provides support for important projects. The range of services starts with suitable subsidies and continues with innovative software products for the needs of the wood forestry sector. The focus is on the development of long-term competitiveness by initiating and implementing lighthouse projects. Bioeconomy Austria is such a lighthouse project, in which Holzcluster Steiermark as one of five hub partners actively promotes the bioeconomy in Austria. The focus is placed on the topic of “bringing wood into new applications” in order to network companies, research, politics and other stakeholders in this context and to break new ground together.
With the help of Bioeconomy Austria, the Styrian focus on bringing wood into mobility is to be further advanced. Through COMET projects such as WoodC.A.R and CARpenTiER, Holzcluster Steiermark and its partners can already look back on several years of experience in the development of structural components made of wood in the automotive sector. Bioeconomy Austria offers the opportunity to take the accumulated know-how beyond Styria’s borders and, with new impulses, to direct increased attention to new fields of application for wood in the future. Through the targeted networking of stakeholders along the wood value chain with partners from mechanical and plant engineering, the rail sector and in aviation, the preparatory work for future projects involving wood in new applications is being done. As a result, we as a wood cluster can accompany companies that position themselves along the wood value chain within the framework of the bioeconomy even more effectively in innovation processes. The cluster network also provides support in the expansion of business fields and in company start-ups.
