The NEXT FLOOR TECHNOLOGY FOR TOURISM NETWORK and the STATE OF SALZBURG
in cooperation with BERCHTESGADENER LAND are looking for MOBILITY SOLUTIONS!
THE NEXT FLOOR TECHNOLOGY FOR TOURISM NETWORK IS INVITING HIGHLY MOTIVATED AND COMMITTED ENTREPRENEURS TO ITS REAL LIFE LABORATORY TO EVALUATE THEIR SOLUTIONS AND BRING THEM TO USE.
THE 3nd CALL FOR APPLICATION IS NOW OPEN UNTIL FEBRUARY 14th 2020!
The Next Floor Technology for Tourism Network is focused on technology innovations with applications in Travel, Tourism and Mobility. This generally covers a wide technological field, eg. FinTech, Robotics, Blockchain, AI or Data Management across many industries that can interact with activities in Travel, Tourism and Mobility, such as Health Care, Smart City/Region, Smart Manufacturing or AgroTech. With this specific call we offer innovative companies the opportunity to participate in a challenge, the Austrian State of Salzburg proposed:
The City and State of Salzburg and neighbouring Berchtesgadener Land (Germany) are on a daily basis dealing with the challenges posed by over tourism and commuting. As a consequence, traffic collapses frequently and quite often with limited recognizable pat- terns. The State of Salzburg is tackling this problem – also with neighboring German communities – on multiple fronts including the setup of transportation hubs to move more traffic from individual to public transportation.
We are looking for innovative solutions that identify root causes, analyze specific interdependencies and offer flexible solutions to specific stages of the user or traveler journey. This can include incentive systems, new logistics formats, improved public transportation or predictive analytical systems. Whatever your solution is, – even if your approach is unusual – apply! We are interested to hear from you.
With this batch, we want to get to know you, understand how your solution can be applied to the benefit of the region and evaluate what would be necessary to do so.
HERE IS WHAT YOU GET:
The selected companies have the possibility to get a 12-month contract with the State of Salzburg to bring their idea into application.
If the 12-month test period is completed with successful results, the contract will be extended and your solution will be presented to other regions with similar problems.

A Tailored and interactive program with the focus on
young companies or scale-up/corporate or public co-operations
