The guiding principle which unites the approximately 70 organizations in tpv is the combination of education & training, research & development, and business & industry in one location. The so-called “three-pillar model” has shown that a competitive advantage arises through the merging of the approximately 700 employees, 70 apprentices, and over 1000 university students that are on-site.

Several organizations which focus on the areas of education & training have already made their home in tpv, including the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (with departments in Engineering & IT and Management), the build! start-up incubator, the GPS Training Center, the Austrian Economic Chamber (WKO) with WIFI Villach, as well as the Berufs- und Bildungsorientierung Kärnten (Career Guidance and Education Counseling Center of Carinthia).

Here you’ll find detailed information about the companies that are active in the areas of education & training.
