Innovation, quality, security and constant evolution are the cornerstones of our success. Nowadays, innovation increasingly occurs through creative exchange with external consultants in the framework of open innovation, rather than in in-house research and development departments. With our innovation platform, we are taking a big step in this direction by creating a space for collaborative exchange, community and creativity.

Great things can happen when people with different perspectives come together, come up with new solutions and develop them as a team. Our innovation platform gives you the opportunity to test your ideas by entering our competitions, the first of which is about future trends. Through this we aim to get to know creative people who are interested in contributing their skills, participating in interesting projects, meeting like-minded people and forming part of our innovation community.

Our first competition was dedicated to future trends.


More than 120 creative entries were submitted to our competition, which was called ‘Creative minds and innovative ideas coming together to develop a vision for the future’. Following a community vote, our expert jury ranked the 25 winning ideas and awarded them valuable coins in the spirit of ‘Your idea is worth its weight in gold’.

All ideas are published on the Münze Österreich innovation platform (

The coins were presented in the historic Stempelsaal of Münze Österreich on 25 October 2022 by CEO Gerhard Starsich and Board Director Manfred Matzinger-Leopold.

We would like to congratulate all the winners, among whom we were able to present prizes in person to Julia Mühl, Monika Morandi, Matthias Slatner and Kemal Kara.


Open innovation is an exciting concept!

We are happy to answer questions about our innovation platform and the competition:
