It's a fascination with research that motivates us. We want your entry to the Steel Research Award!

Research and development have always enjoyed the highest priority at technology group voestalpine. With a record research budget of EUR 150 million in the business year 2016/17, voestalpine is Austria’s most research-intensive company. Worldwide, the Group employs the staff of around 730 in research and development at over 70 voestalpine companies.
