Why EdTech

In a highly digitized world, the use of new technologies in education and training is still lagging behind. Educational institutions as well as parents and companies are not – and this was ruthlessly exposed by the Corona crisis – sufficiently familiar with digital possibilities. There is already a wide range of offerings that support learning: from the vividness of a VR world, to artificial intelligence that guides through learning programs, to playful approaches (gamification), as well as various combinations. So-called EdTech companies develop offerings that support learning. With EdTech Austria, we bring EdTechs, users and research institutions together.

Our vision

Together with you, we want to make Salzburg a place where EdTechs can develop and try out their products and encounter an environment that approaches testing and implementing these offerings with an open mind.

Most importantly, teaching and learning can be enhanced and simplified with the support of digital tools. We would like to pave the way for this in this network.
