In 2014, Internationalisation Centre Styria launced a three-year programme focusing on the Oresund Region as partner for collaboration.

The Austrian state of Styria has evolved into one of the most innovative regions in Europe. The regional R&D quota is 4.7 per cent. Styria is an export state; one out of two jobs is secured by the success of Styrian companies on foreign markets.

In October, a delegation of 60 people headed by Christian Buchmann – Styrian Minister for Economic Affairs, Europe and Culture, visited the Öresund region to intensify collaboration. The goal was to learn from one another and thus broaden the economic growth and value creation in both regions.

During their two days visit to Copenhagen, Styrian companies from the pharma, greentech and wood sectors as well as politicians, regional economic organisations, universities, R&D institutions and local media met with some of Denmark's strongest companies and top organisations. The packed programme, organised by ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Copenhagen, also included an infotaining Styria on Tour Reception with regional wine and delicacies and the international premier of the new “Styria –Region Unlimited” image video.
