About us

CTR Carinthian Tech Research AG is an industry-oriented research and development center for smart sensors and system integration. As the largest non-university research center in southern Austria, CTR has gained a reputation for expertise in R&D sensor technologies serving science and industry at both a national and international level. CTR focuses on four main research areas: Microsystem Technologies, Packaging & Hetero-integration, Photonic Systems and Smart Systems.

In the Austrian COMET program, CTR features with "ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center" as a K1 center of excellence.

Optimal solution of different connections. It is necessary to have various substrates, electronic chips and case-by-case components in a system perfectly matched. The expertise ranges from simulations, assembly and connection technologies to additive manufacturing processes.
