5 Dear Readers, The ICT idustry is boomig all over the world ad i Viea, too. This brochure describes the fidigs of a study o Viea as a ICT locatio. It was carried out i 2007 ad commissioed by the Muicipal Departmet for EU-Strategy ad Ecoomic Developmet (https://www.wie.gv.at/wirtschaft/eu-strategie/wirtschaft/pdf/ikt.pdf). The study shows that the added value of Viea s ICT idustry is six times higher tha that of Viea s traditioal maistay, the tourism idustry. I 2006, the combied gross reveue of approximately 5,500 compaies, from small eterprises to multiatioal corporatios, amouted to approximately 20 billio. Thus the ICT idustry is oe of the pillars of the city s wealth. Thaks to its locatio at the heart of Europe, Viea is a very iteratioal city ad fuctios as a hub for the Cetral ad Easter Europea coutries. It excels i terms of quality of life. It has extremely high stadards i educatio ad vocatioal traiig. Berhard Schmid Project Maager Viea IT Eterprises (VITE) / Viea Busiess Agecy (VBA) Austria is a pioeer i ivestig ad workig i ew markets. Austria is the biggest ivestor i Bulgaria, Croatia ad Sloveia, ad raks amog the top three i several other coutries of the regio such as the Czech Republic, Hugary ad Slovakia. Most of these activities origiate i Viea, where the majority of the big idustry players are foud. This settig is also a icubator for youg ad iovative start ups ad it sets stadards for the city s future as a importat ICT locatio. As a busiess, it is worth your while to eter ito cooperatio with IT compaies located i Viea. Ad the beefits of foudig or relocatig a busiess i this attractive city are also worth cosiderig. We would be happy to provide assistace i all matters related to doig busiess i Viea. Yours Berhard Schmid Seite 3

6 INTRODUCTION Viea: The Soud of High-Tech Viea: The Soud of High-Tech Viea is already world famous for its cultural heritage ad classical music. I the past decades it has also become oe of Europe s leadig covetio cities. But a eve more recet developmet ivolves the city s boomig digital idustry. Its added value for the muicipality is six times greater tha that of the tourism idustry. Viea is the biggest ICT hub for Cetral ad Easter Europe ad is oe of the regio s mai ICT-related research locatios. This stadig has bee achieved i part due to the City of Viea s forwardlookig, headlie strategy for research ad techological developmet: Wie dekt Zukuft, or Viea Looks to the Future (www.wiedektzukuft.at/dowloads/strategie_eglish.pdf). >>> The followig pages will provide a overview of Viea ad its ICT idustry. Gross turover of the Viea ICT idustry grew to more tha 24 billio i 2007, 30% of which was i export. Nearly 60% of all export reveues came from the ew EU member states ad Easter Europea coutries. Numerous ICT multiatioals ad Austria compaies maage their CEE operatios from Viea. The city hosts importat subsidiaries of Siemes, Philips, Alcatel, SAP ad more. Viea s highlights iclude digital image processig ad computer visio, embedded systems, e-govermet, quatum computig, speech processig, traffic telematics ad the vast area of creative idustries. Viea houses all istitutios of Austria s federal govermet. Ad Austria cosistetly scores amog the top coutries i Europea e-govermet rakigs, a accomplishmet which has a lot to do with the efforts udertake by the city of Viea itself. For example, there are the umerous activities of the city s public fudig bodies, the Viea Busiess Agecy (VBA) ad its Ceter for Techology ad Iovatio (ZIT); its platforms for ICT ad the creative idustries, VITE ad departure, respectively; ad also the Viea Sciece ad Techology Fud (WWTF). Viea is also the settig for Europe s most competitive mobile commuicatios market. As oe spokesperso for Alcatel Lucet Austria, the Austria subsidiary of the Frech ICT giat, claims, if you ca make it i Viea, you ca make it aywhere. Seite 4

9 VIENNA: THE BASICS A Traditioal Face with a High-Tech Heart A Traditioal Face with a High-Tech Heart Viea (www.wie.at/eglish) is the capital of Austria ad a federal republic at the heart of Europe. Historically, geographically ad ecoomically, the city has log bee Europe s leadig hub for doig busiess i Cetral ad Easter Europe ad beyod. The iteratioal iformatio ad commuicatio idustries i particular have selected Viea as their Cetral Europea ceter. With aroud 1.8 millio ihabitats, Viea is the third-largest uiversity locatio i the Germa-speakig realm ad raks amog the top three cities worldwide i terms of quality of life ad public safety. Viea s muicipal admiistratio is oe of Europe s most efficiet. It is also raked amog the cities with the highest desity of broadbad access. Thaks to the Viea Iteratioal Airport (www.vieaairport.com) it boasts the highest umber of flights to Cetral ad Easter Europe as well as Cetral Asia. To top it off, it also has a excellet public trasportatio etwork (www.vor.at). As the capital of Austria, Viea profits from the coutry s high productivity, low uemploymet rate, low iflatio rate, ad extremely low strike rate (www.wie.gv.at/eglish/politics/statistics). Amog iteratioal cities, Viea has oe of the very lowest levels of corruptio. Viea has a excellet educatioal ifrastructure o all levels. It is home to aroud 20 iteratioal schools where studets are taught i as may laguages, from Arabic, Czech, Eglish, Frech, Germa, Japaese, Russia to Swedish. Iovative compaies based i Viea profit from a extesive public fudig system for start ups, research ad developmet ad a wide rage of other support measures. Although Viea is a historic city with imperial gradeur, it has a exceedigly moder ifrastructure which accommodates a costatly growig idustry. The Viea property market cotiued its positive developmet i 2007, whe ew lettig reached a record high of 385,000 m 2 ad the property ivestmet market saw a record volume of 2.8 billio. The high level of occupacy is maily due to relocatios, with may compaies movig ito moder, more efficiet office space, such as the projects Doau City (www.doaucity.at), Busiess Park Viea (www.busiessparkviea.com) ad TowTow (www.towtow.at). At the same time, Viea s office space retal rates are amog the most affordable i Europe. Brigitte Ederer, CEO Siemes Austria Brigitte Ederer studied ecoomics ad worked for Austria s Chamber of Labour, was Member of Parliamet, chaired several parliametary committees, was Miister of State for Europea Itegratio ad Developmet Cooperatio ad later Miister of State for Europea Affairs, Secretary Geeral of Austria s Social Democratic Party, the Executive City Coucillor for Fiace, Ecoomic Affairs ad the Public Eterprises of the City of Viea ad, i 2005, became Chief Executive Officer of Siemes AG Austria. Today, Brigitte Ederer is CEO of Siemes Austria ad of the compay s CEE cluster cosistig of 17 coutries i Cetral ad Easter Europe. Siemes Austria is also the headquarters of Siemes program ad software developmet divisio PSE. The high-tech district Doau City, oe of may tech hot spots i Viea.

10 VIENNA: THE BASICS Educatio & Vocatioal Traiig Educatio & Vocatioal Traiig: Excellet Skills for a Soud Ecoomy A survey by Austria s major ecoomic research istitute WIFO reveals that multiatioals located i Viea ame two mai criteria for their decisio to come to ad remai i Viea: the availability of a qualified workforce ad the high level of school educatio. These two factors are obviously iterrelated. Austria s school system ad particularly Viea s, where the desity ad variety of schools is the highest has two mai advatages for high-tech idustries: The dual vocatioal traiig system (www.bmukk.gv.at/efr/school/seco/app.xml) requires vocatioal studets (usually at the age of fiftee, whe madatory schoolig eds) to apply for a appropriate job at a certified compay. Employig vocatioal studets obliges compaies to fulfill demadig criteria; altogether, this results i a high educatioal level. Austria s appretices are raked at the very top i aual iteratioal vocatioal cotests, such as the WorldSkills iteratioal 2007 (www.worldskills.org) i Japa, where Austria wo two gold, oe silver ad oe broze medal ad 19 awards for excellece. Overall, Austria is raked umber two i Europe, just after Switzerlad. The Höhere Techische Lehrastalt HTL (www.berufsbildedeschule.at) is a secodary techical high school system that has eared the respect of the idustry. Studets graduate at the age of 19 ad are frequetly rated equal to uiversity graduates o the basis of their practical skills. Oe of the most esteemed schools for iformatics ad maagemet is Viea s HTL Spegergasse (www.spegergasse.at) with its approximately 1,300 studets. Compaies like Siemes, Philips, Telekom Austria, Kapsch, but also small ad medium-sized ICT compaies literally lie up o graduatio day to employ appretices ad HTL graduates. Viea s leadig schools for academic educatio i iformatics ad ICT are the Viea Uiversity of Techology (www.tuwie.ac.at) ad Viea Uiversity (www.uivie.ac.at). Viea s Uiversity of Ecoomics ad Busiess Admiistratio (www.wu-wie.ac.at) offers studies i busiess iformatics; a umber of uiversities of applied scieces, called Fachhochschule i Germa (www.fhr.ac.at), offer a wide variety of special ICT-related subjects. The 2007 World Competitiveess Yearbook raks Austria skilled labor, productivity ad maagemet competece as top i the area of employee motivatio ad corporate traiig ad secod place worldwide overall (www.imd.ch/research/publicatios/wcy/idex.cfm).

11 VIENNA: THE BASICS Networks & Platforms Networks & Platforms The ICT idustry is oe of the best etworked sectors, ad Viea offers a rich variety of iitiatives ad associatios to foster ad support ICT busiesses, i particular for the more tha 70,000 small ad medium-sized busiesses. VITE, or Viea IT Eterprises (www.vite.at) is a etwork for ICT compaies, etrepreeurs ad research orgaizatios supportig its members i marketig, export, iteratioalizatio, EU projects, legal matters ad a rage of other issues. Several times each year VITE orgaizes presetatios abroad ad has so far visited Belgrade, Brussels, Bucharest, Kiev ad Moscow. The platform was fouded i 2004 by the VBA, or Viea Busiess Agecy (www.vba.at) which is Viea s major fudig ad ivestmet istitutio ad a joit veture of the City of Viea ad the Austria Federal Ecoomic Chamber (www.wko.at). Via its Ceter for Iovatio ad Techology, or ZIT (www.zit.co.at) the VBA also orgaizes regular ICT-related calls for teders i which compaies ad orgaizatios compete for fudig opportuities. This healthy competitio has helped a growig umber of compaies to develop iovative ad potetially lucrative products ad services (www.zit.co.at). A VITE delegatio at the Europea Parliamet i Brussels after a presetatio of Viea s ICT research ageda i April I Austria, membership i the Federal Ecoomic Chamber is madatory for every registered compay. The Chamber offers service platforms for each idustry. UBIT (www.ubit.at) is the Chamber s ICT associatio, ad the Viea chapter is the biggest i Austria. UBIT is ivolved i issues such as salary egotiatios ad employmet regulatios ad acts as a lobby for its members. Viea is also the home of the Austria Computer Society, or OCG (www.ocg.at) with just over 1,000 members. The OCG is a more scietifically-orieted platform, orgaizig atioal ad iteratioal ICT cofereces such as the aual E-Gov Days (e-govermet.adv.at) ad its sister evet i the Czech Republic (www.epma.cz/7th_eeegovdays.html). The electroics idustry etworks via its platform FEEI (www.feei.at). Iteret providers lobby ad share kow-how withi the ISPA (www.ispa.at). As well, there are a umber of smaller specialized associatios for multimedia, broadbad, mobile commuicatios, gamig ad others, so that each particular iterest ejoys represetatio. Seite 9

IQOQI was co-fouded by the Austria Academy of Scieces (www.oeaw.ac.at) ad the Uiversity of Viea. I tadem with other istitutes ad eterprises, IQOQI collaborates with the smart systems divisio of Austria s largest research orgaizatio, Austria Research Ceters ARCS, o quatum cryptography ad related issues (for more, go to The reowed Seed Magazie writes: The theory (of Quatum Mechaics) implies that whe we measure particles ad atoms, at least oe of two log-held physical priciples is uteable: Distat evets do ot affect oe other, ad properties we wish to observe exist before our measuremets. Oe of these, locality or realism, must be fudametally icorrect. For more tha 70 years, iumerable physicists have tried to disetagle the meaig of quatum mechaics through debate. Now Zeiliger ad his collaborators have performed a series of experimets that, while eatly agreeig with the theory s predictios, are reivigoratig these historical dialogues. I Viea experimets are testig whether quatum mechaics permits a fudametal physical reality. A ew way of uderstadig a already powerful theory is begiig to take shape, oe that could chage the way we uderstad the world aroud us. This past Jauary (2008), Zeiliger became the first ever recipiet of the Isaac Newto Medal for his pioeerig cotributios to physics as the head of oe of the most successful quatum optics groups i the world. * I October 2008, Siemes IT Solutios ad Services (SIS PSE) i Viea (www.pse.siemes.at) ad Austria Research Ceters ARCS preseted the world s first tap-proof commuicatio etwork usig quatum physics withi the Europea SECOQC project (www.secoqc.et).

18 SEMICONDUCTORS Naostructures ad Atom Chips Semicoductors: Naostructures ad Atom Chips Austria has a very iterestig semicoductor ladscape ad Viea itself ca boast several highlights i both R&D ad commerce. I additio to the above-metioed NXP Semicoductors (www.xp.com), ODemad Microelectroics (www.odemad.co.at) is aother successful youg eterprise based i Viea s high-tech district Doau City. Fouded i 2003 as a spi-off from Aalog Devices, ODemad Microelectroics is a veture capital-backed fabless semicoductor compay with offices i Palo Alto, Austi, ad Bagalore. The missio of the compay from its iceptio has bee to provide programmable high-performace video ad imagig solutios based o a ovel ad scalable processor architecture. IMS Naofabricatio AG (www.ims.co.at) is a techology iovator ad provider for aotechology idustries. Thaks to their extesive kow-how i charged particle systems, they ca offer solutios for the direct trasfer of custom desig patters to resist or to geerate resist-less two- ad threedimesioal surface modificatios with features below 10 aometers. IMS has started a joit project with the Viea Uiversity of Techology to develop a ew type of semicoductor productio by creatig ao-stamps as traditioal productio patters which caot be further miiaturized. Jörg Schmiedmayer is workig o revolutioary ew developmets i microstructures which will evetually lead to completely ew computer architectures. The Viea Uiversity of Techology plays a importat role i semicoductor research. Oe example: the Atom Chip Group (www.atomchip.org) of semicoductor guru Jörg Schmiedmayer, which is workig o revolutioary ew developmets i microstructures which will evetually lead to completely ew computer architectures. Atom chips are microfabricated, itegrated devices i which electric, magetic ad optical fields ca cofie, cotrol ad maipulate cold atoms. Through miiaturizatio, atom chips offer a versatile ew techology for implemetig moder ideas i quatum optics, quatum measuremet ad quatum iformatio processig. Over the last five years, there has bee spectacular progress i preparig ad maipulatig the quatum states of atom clouds o chips. The ext major challege is maipulatig sigle atoms, allowig them to have cotrolled collisios ad couplig them to sigle photos i optical microcavities. This emergig techology will lead to ew quatum devices ad ultimately to quatum iformatio processig o a chip. Seite 16

19 NEAR FIELD COMMUNICATION A Techology Developed i Viea Near Field Commuicatio: A Techology Developed i Viea Austria has a remarkable history of pioeerig developmets but also of rapidly adoptig ew techologies. Austria was the first coutry i Europe to have a idepedet, iterbak automatic teller machie system available aroud the clock; oe of the first coutries to itroduce the electroic wallet, mobile paymet, ad commercial UMTS; it tested the first Voice over IP applicatios; ad has itroduced ENUM. Most of these break-through developmets happeed first i Viea, ormally withi the framework of joit projects betwee uiversities ad compaies such as Alcatel, Siemes, Ericsso or Kapsch. Viea was where the music cassette ad the VHS system, the CD ad more recetly, Near Field Commuicatio got their start. >>> Near Field Commuicatio for Mobile Applicatios I September 2007 Mobilkom Austria, Telekom Austria Group s mobile subsidiary, lauched the world s largest ad most comprehesive commercial package of Near Field Commuicatio (NFC) services i Austria i cooperatio with its parters NXP Semicoductors, Nokia, Austria Federal Railways (ÖBB) ad Wieer Liie, Viea s mai public trasportatio operator. NFC, developed i Austria by NXP (formerly Philips Semicoductors) ad Soy, facilitates short-rage commuicatio betwee electroic devices via a fast ad easy wireless coectio. Meawhile ÖBB ad Wieer Liie have itroduced NFC ticketig i daily operatios. Mobile phoe tickets ad SMS tickets were already extremely popular with public trasportatio passegers before NFC. Now, NFC offers customers aother ew ad safe opportuity to purchase public trasport tickets. Passegers hold their mobile phoes to a NFC touchpoit located directly o the platform, the eter the desired destiatio ad sed off the text; secods later, the ticket arrives o the mobile phoe. NFC solutios have ow bee implemeted all aroud Viea for public trasport tickets, food ad beverage vedig machies, lottery games, rigtoes ad railway vouchers (http://www.fc.at). Break-through NFC developmets have also origiated i the e-health divisio of Austria Research Ceters ARCS: a cell phoe based o touch-free applicatios for the telemoitorig of health data for patiets who are ot able to type i data o a cell phoe keyboard. Data is trasmitted to the cell phoe by movig the phoe close to aother device, for example a blood pressure gauge. This product was awarded the Frost & Sulliva Excellece i Research Award i 2007 ad was preseted at the 2008 ehealth coferece (www.arcsmed.at). NFC ticketig at a Vieese public trasport stop. Seite 17
