Shaping future mobility also includes the consideration of societal changes. New technologies need new forms of organisation and supply in order to manifest their benefits and have positive impact on our transport system. Supporting these changes is a core task of AustriaTech. It is crucial for our understanding and our credibility to live and represent these changes within our agency with regards to the environment, inclusion and equality.
Sustainability, efficiency and environmental friendliness are the guiding principles of our actions. They shape the choice of activities and responsibilities we undertake and are the guiding principles for the management and control of the company.
