SAL Science & Stories No. 2/ September 2019


Dear all,


With this newsletter, we would like to inform you about all the important milestones, success stories and research activities of SAL in the last month. This time, we would like to introduce our CRM (Customer Relationship Management) team who is in charge of project acquisition. As this is an important part of SAL research, we will tell you how we go about the process. Furthermore, we have new interesting project calls and want to inform you about our SAL activities at the European Forum in Alpbach. 

We hope you enjoy this issue of SAL Science & Stories. Let's unfold the future together!   


Statement from Werner Luschnig, Executive Director of SAL

      
Contracts for cooperative projects with industry partners are now the highest priority for SAL. With the existing SAL competence fields we are striving for research excellence and are well prepared for our industrial ecosystem to commit to SAL projects. Research areas in which we succeed with partners will grow further. In some areas in which we don’t find that commitment by partners we might need to reshape. Our Customer Relationship Management Team (CRM) will support the research teams in matching project content with customer needs and manage the process of project acquisition. This will be great teamwork across our organization and locations.

From customer acquisition to scientific projects:
Duties and Responsibilities of our CRM Team

SAL has been established to further strengthen Austria as an economic location in the field of electronic based systems. This is only possible with excellent researchers, strong partners and a successful customer relationship management. Therefore, our CRM team constantly analyses the EBS market and its needs, increases SAL’s visibility in the scientific community by attending fairs, workshops and events, identifies potential customers and maintains a strong relationship with our current key accounts.

With SAL’s various research project models (SAL projects, contract research, competitive and cooperative research projects), our CRM team is tasked with finding the best research model for our partners. This is only possible through permanent high-quality contact with the customers in order to gain their trust, get to know their companies and learn how to best cater to their needs. Due to our experience, we can maintain relationships with clients who have already successfully worked together with us. Thanks to our founding members and stakeholders (e.g. FEEI) with their extensive networks, we can access an additional pool of new customers who can benefit from our research expertise.

SAL aims for research excellence. So does our CRM team, when acquiring customers who want to benefit from a world-class research center in the heart of Europe. Our goal is to maintain long-lasting relationships with our customers and partners in order to fulfil the technological challenges of tomorrow and shape the Austrian EBS-ecosystem.

SAL meets Alpbach

The Technology Symposium at the European Forum Alpbach does not only offer high-quality talks and a picturesque landscape, but many-faceted opportunities to propel ideas into innovation. This is exactly what we at SAL are aiming for and what we initiated at Forum Alpbach.

Dr. Christina Hirschl attended the "fish-bowl" discussion during the second Alps-Adriatic reception at Alpbach. The idea of the reception is to bring young minds together with experienced networkers. People from Austria, Slovenia and Italy attended the reception. Internationality and research excellence are pillars of SAL's success. This is why events such as the European Forum Alpbach are great places to connect with members of industry, economy and science.

Upcoming Events
Two of our SAL researchers, Mirjana Vide­nović-Mišić and Gernot Hueber, will participate in the workshop "5G Radios - Concept, Systems and Silicon" at the ESSCIRC conference from 23rd to 26th September in Kraków, Poland. The work­shop will focus on new and under­lying concepts and systems in 5G, inclu­ding the advan­tages and chal­lenges of Massive MIMO and beam-forming, as well as RFIC design exam­ples.
