Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The Mechatronics Cluster (MC) is a cross-industry network for companies working in the fields of mechanical engineering and plant construction as well as related business sectors such as apparatus and equipment manufacturing, technology component supply, research and development as well as educational institutions. Mechatronics - as an interdisciplinary subject combining mechanical engineering, electronics and information technology - has become an integral part of our daily lives with very strong roots in Upper Austria thanks to a number of pioneering firms and R&D facilities.

The Mechatronics Cluster is an initiative of the countries Upper Austria and Lower Austria. The legal bodies of the Mechatronics Cluster are Business Upper Austria - Oö. Wirtschaftsagentur GmbH and ecoplus.Niederösterreichs Wirtschaftsagentur.
