High-tech & energy transition

as an economic flywheel

The Innovation Park is a successful symbiosis of urban proximity, dedicated industrial space and highly functional transport links.

Johann Puch conquered the world market for bicycles and commercial vehicles from this site 120 years ago.

Today, as then, innovation was the engine of success. While at Puch it was newly developed gear ratios, transmissions and drives, today it is digitalisation and electronics that make new products, services and paths to the energy revolution possible.

Accordingly, almost all companies in the innovation park are involved in the research, development and implementation of products and methods that are successful in the fields of environmental technologies, resource conservation and alternative energy utilisation. The mix of fast-growing start-ups, internationally active SMEs and global corporations creates the climate at Planet Innovation Park.

A high level of education, a smart focus on solutions and an omnipresent internationality are the common denominators of the Inhabitants of Innovationspark

Success is attractive. This guarantees growth and a further influx of companies.
Growth for which the Innovation Park can offer appropriate spaces and projects and for which the city of Graz creates the appropriate framework conditions.

So that in 120 years it will still be called:
