In line with the Expo motto "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future", innovations "made in Austria" contribute to make the world a good deal more sustainable, safer and better. As an integral part of the exhibition, the iLab in the pavilion is dedicated to the innovative strength of Austria. 

The selection of more than 60 innovations illustrates the ingenuity of Austrian companies, creative entrepreneurs and research institutions and presents solutions in fields such as environmental technology, life sciences, digital solutions and many more.

  • What is the iLab?
    • Our iLab is a place for in-depth discussion and reflection. The iLab stands for innovation, inspiration, information, ideas, interaction and more, To underpin the thematic variety, our iLab is used for temporary exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and even installations and experiments that provide a meaningful contribution to the high quality of Austria’s diversity. Here, research institutes, institutions, universities, and other organisations are offered an additional platform for presenting their ideas, innovations and solutions  
  • How are the innovations for the iLab selected?
    • In 2019 a "Call 4 Projects" was held throughout Austria to select the projects. A jury of experts made the selection for the iLab at the end of 2019. However, the Covid19-related postponement of the Expo by one year has not only changed the general conditions, but has also led to an economic, political and social change in the weighting of topics, which will bring new innovations. The iLab as a place of innovation and inspiration reflects this. As a result, the selected innovations are being evaluated in this context. This process will be completed by the end of 2020. 
  • Can I use the iLab for my own events?
    • Austrian companies and delegations can hold their own events in the VIP Lounge to exchange ideas with their guests such as experts, partners and stakeholders in a relaxed atmosphere. The VIPLounge can be used in a variety of ways for receptions, information event, networking event, company presentations, concluding an incentive trip, and more.
