Research and Technology Development from Austria

JOANNEUM RESEARCH, headquartered in Graz,  is a successful national and internationally active research institution owned by the Austrian federal states of Styria, Carinthia and Burgenland. Ideally embedded in the national and international innovation network, our researchers innovate in three high-level fields of expertise: “Information and Production Technologies”, “Human Technologies and Medicine”, and “Society and Sustainability”. We use our ideas, innovative power and considerable research experience to support companies both private and public not only with the development of technology, methods and products, but also with societal topics.

The WildLifePRO cooperation network, funded by the German Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (ZIM), is committed to the conservation of our ecosystems, biodiversity and safeguarding animal welfare, which are elementary components for the continued existence of the Earth and humanity.

WildLifePRO focuses, among other things, on animal monitoring (e.g. in reintroduction or release programmes) or on technical solutions for animal management (e.g. in zoological facilities) and aims to develop innovative solutions for the welfare of wild and zoo animals.

Harald Ganster from JOANNEUM RESEARCH - DIGITAL has now been appointed international coordinator in the network. The task of the international coordinator is to act as the central contact person outside Germany for the PromoTool network management facility.

The focus of the cooperation is on the development of cooperative relationships between the German, Austrian and Swiss network partners, the conception and implementation of joint research and development projects as well as public relations work to further increase the profile of the network.

Harald Ganster was introduced to the network partners in this role at the 4th WildLifePRO network meeting on 27 October 2021 at the Tierpark Berlin.
