WHERE INNOLAB HAPPENS

Our program runs in Dornbirn/Vorarlberg, which is located in Austria’s far west, nestling between Lake Constance and the Alps. Pleasantly small in size, the region stands out for charming culture and stunning natural scenery.
Vorarlberg presents you with ample opportunities to enjoy nature. Experience unforgettable moments in the Austrian Alps while exploring the local culture.
Vorarlberg has a robust and diverse economy, with thriving industries in areas such as manufacturing, engineering or textiles. By being part of InnoLab you can learn from professionals in these dynamic sectors and create new opportunities.
HOW YOU’LL LEARN
You’ll get more than a transformative learning experience at InnoLab. You’ll refine your knowledge through unique access to industry practitioners at the forefront of their fields.
Industry practitioners and academics with practical experience are our mentors. They deliver workshops, talks and 1-1 coaching sessions during office hours.
Executives and managers foster knowledge exchange between our company partners and InnoLab teams. They facilitate direct access to the assets of the company.
Lead mentors from outside the company are your team’s main reference point. They help you accelerate your product development with their expertise and experience.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
Introduce yourself by sharing an insight or idea for the challenge you want to tackle in a 2-minute video.
The program is entirely free. You receive a stipend from our challenge partners. OMICRON InnoLab team members receive a monthly salary of € 1.800.
The Workshops will take place in person in Dornbirn (AUT) at the Gravitat – BTV House of Innovation. The OMICRON InnoLab team will work on Monday and Tuesday at Gravitat and the rest of the week at the OMICRON headquarter in KLAUS. With these two locations you will get the best of both worlds: The autonomy of a space outside the company and the opportunity to connect with teams and people at the company premise.
The InnoLab’s language will be a mix of English and German depending where the participants come from. Teams can choose to work together in whatever language they want, but the outcomes of the event will have to be in English too.
The event is free for everyone to join. Our main group of participants is university students with diverse backgrounds including business, design, and engineering.
You will have to submit a video that summarizes your idea for the innovation challenge on our registration form.
In this case, you can apply with a video introducing yourself, your interests and skills, and motivation for joining the InnoLab. Moreover, you will have to briefly explain an industry trend or inspiration relative to the challenge you would like to tackle.
Teams will have access to a platform showcasing useful ressources to progress on the idea. Webinars, check-ins, and office hours will complement the support.
InnoLab ends with a Demo Day where you showcase your idea in front of the company partners, experts, mentors, and potential investors. Depending on the project you have been working on and the outcomes of the Demo Day, you’ll be advised on different ways to move forward with your idea or with your next career steps.
