press conference

With the entry in the company register on July 11, Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) and Carinthian Tech Research (CTR) have legally merged into one research center! The signing of the merger agreement took place on June 25 and was presented to the press during a successful press conference and expert talk. The resounding feedback from journalists, other media and guests alike shows the importance of SAL for the region and the Austrian EBS ecosystem. There was also a news report about the merger and the future of SAL, which you can watch here (duration: 2 min).


We celebrated the successful merger at our summer party at Lake Ossiach. Great food and productive conversations in a relaxed atmosphere - of course with some dancing! The summer party was a great way to bring SAL people from Graz, Villach and Linz together. Everyone was asked to bring an item that represented his/her work, which was a fun way to get the party started.
