Softwarepark Hagenberg is a research, training and business location. As a spin-off of Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz, it was founded by Univ. Prof. Dr. Bruno Buchberger who still contributes significantly to innovation in Upper Austria to this day. The software park is distinguished by its state-of-the-art infrastructure, as well as a diverse network of experienced industry experts, young creative people and students who are eager for knowledge. This synergy in particular is a major part of the recipe for success; as the software park is a place of communication and meeting, where around 3050 people work, research, teach, learn and live. The fusion of state-of-the-art technology with a picturesque natural environment means that it is an amazing place to live. This lends Softwarepark Hagenberg a special quality and creates a working and living environment for future generations today.
As a location for constant innovation and continuous progress in the software field, Softwarepark Hagenberg is an ideal environment for regional and interregional IT projects. Softwarepark Hagenberg management acts as an agent for many successful projects and welcomes national and international delegations to Hagenberg during visits and events. Special emphasis is placed on promoting young talent by means of various workshops. The 30-year anniversary and the long-term success of this philosophy once again confirmed the Austrian economy’s need for Softwarepark Hagenberg.
