Description

CTR is a non-academic and application-oriented research centre in Carinthia and ranks among Austria’s leading research institutes in the area of "Smart Sensors and Systems Integration". Its task and objective is to develop innovative sensor technologies (photonic, sensor, micro and nano systems as well as assembly, packaging and integration technologies) for industry and to integrate them in concrete applications. CTR research will therefore play a role in meeting society’s great challenges, such as energy, mobility, health, climate and security. 

The services range from initial feasibility studies, technology monitoring, testing and simulation to systems integration and prototypes suitable for industrial applications. CTR also provides information on research programmes and is actively engaged in technology transfer.

Established in 1997, CTR has filed over 80 patents and conducts research in regional, national and international projects. Research partners include small medium and large sized companies as well as globally renowned universities and institutions (like ESA or Fraunhofer Society). Moreover CTR is an active member of AENEAS (Association for European NanoElectronics ActivitieS) ECSEL Austria (Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership) and EPoSS - The European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration.
