Innovation Days Innsbruck

At the Innovation Days, everyone comes together to create something new – no matter if you are an entrepreneurial student, designer, engineer or business leader. The Innovation Days is where you’ll turn ideas into prototypes in 48 hours. We’re in Innsbruck, right where the Innovation Days began.
