Outsiders often underestimate Carinthia by believing that it is purely a tourism destination. In fact, Carinthia is a high-tech region that bundles essential strengths in the field of industry, IT and the manufacturing sector. The production sector is responsible for more than half of the value creation and approximately half the employment in Carinthia.
Sounds a bit like Silicon Valley? You are not entirely wrong: Around the semiconductor corporation Infineon Austria in Villach, a highly skilled electronics region has grown in recent years, whose impact can be felt as far as Styria and Upper Austria. “Silicon Austria – Silicon Alps” is thus a highly attractive destination for qualified workers looking for a successful future in Carinthia.
