Research & Development

From idea to innovation

VTA carries out intensive research itself and works with prestigious universities and specialist institutions, primarily in Austria and Germany. This applies particularly to the development and quality control of new product lines and processes. Managing Director, Dr. Ulrich Kubinger, is a member of the "German Board of Experts on Environmental Technology and Infrastructure" (DEX), which has a separate head office for Austria located at the VTA headquarters. 
VTA organises numerous specialist events and seminars, including the annual "Kitzbühel Water Symposium" that attracts top-quality international speakers. VTA supports promising young researchers by awarding the generously endowed "Kitzbühel Water Prize", open to applicants from all over Europe.
