Regional strengths - international ideas
The Corporate Call brings together leading Styrian companies and institutions looking for innovative solutions with start-ups from all over Europe.
The goal is to support companies and institutions in Styria in their next innovative step with outstanding solutions and thus to strengthen the innovative power of the region and the leading companies through forward-looking partnerships and cooperations.
Successful cooperations have already been initiated through the Corporate Call in previous years. Well-known cluster companies, such as ams AG, Energie Steiermark, SANLAS Holding, Merkur Versicherung, Lebenshilfen Soziale Dienste, K-Businesscom, were brought together with innovative partners from all over Europe.
However, the Corporate Call and the HTH also prepare the ground for the settlement of innovative life science companies in the region. For example, HTH 2020 was the first port of call for a young Slovenian-Italian MedTech start-up, which has since been successfully incubated at Science Park Graz as a Styrian spin-off.
