The profound transformation of today’s energy, mobility and economic system to an efficient and climate-neutral one as well as the goal of a clean and affordable energy supply for all, will only succeed when people of all disciplines and sectors work together.
The Mission Innovation Austria Week (MIA), established by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund in 2019, provides the necessary platform for all, who actively work on the development and implementation of new technologies and solutions transforming today’s energy system.
Bringing together leading figures from a wide range of disciplines, sectors and industries is made possible by close collaborations with international and European networks as well as key domestic companies and institutions. Together, they work on open questions and solutions, point out needs and demands, share knowledge and experiences, present successful pilots and projects, and network and exchange ideas.
The MIA week is an important part of the Mission Innovation Austria initiative – Austria’s contribution to the global research alliance Mission Innovation (MI) founded in 2015. Today, it comprises 24 states and the European Union, aiming to promote the development of clean energy technologies through private and public investments.
Austria’s participation in international research co-operations enables the promotion of the development and implementation of energy innovations with the Austrian and international market in mind. With their technologies and solutions, local players as pioneers for the energy future are actively involved in international co-operations. They are supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology, positioning Austria internationally among the top performers.
