The infrastructure is available for research projects with industrial partners as well as for training in the study programs of the FH Vorarlberg and for further educational offers.

In the Digital Factory research group project, a new research center is being set up at the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences. A group of digitization experts will address the challenges of digitization and transformation of modern production processes in the future.

The aim of both projects is to provide companies and SMEs in Vorarlberg with resources and competent cooperation partners for the implementation of the digital transformation.

The construction and development of the research center Digital Factory Vorarlberg is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (Project Model Factory Vorarlberg – Development of Infrastructure VIa-142.0.4.02.06-6/2017 and Project Research Group Digital Factory – Development and Expansion of Competencies Model Factory Vorarlberg VIa-142.0.4.02.06-6/2017).
