As a member of the Styrian government, I support CoSA because it provides a unique opportunity for young people to immerse themselves in and experience the world of science and technology at the Natural History Museum. The playful participation and engagement with science, research and technology is an exciting, innovative approach, now realised at the Universalmuseum Joanneum.

Minister for Culture, Government of Styria

We support CoSA because we aim to inspire young people to engage with technology and the natural sciences. Furthermore, it particularly emphasises the need to address the consumption of energy and resources. The room CoSA_Sustainability conveys facts about the topics of climate and energy and encourages the next generation to reconsider their personal behaviour

Anton Lang, Minister for Environment, Government of Styria

Education is the most important resource of the 21st century. CoSA makes it possible for young people to get an exciting and competent idea of the world of tomorrow. In other words, education comes alive and can be experienced here.

Siegfried Nagl, Mayor of Graz

Science means progress. In turn, progress shapes the future and creates quality of life for us all and also for generations to come. That is why it is so important to get our kids and families excited about science. CoSA is a showcase project for that.”

Kurt Hohensinner, City Councillor for Education

We support CoSA because it is our responsibility to nurture a fearless and resolute young generation, to recognise their talents, and empower them in their thirst for knowledge. Curiosity and courage are the basis of all progress.

Günter Riegler, City Councillor for Culture

The Augmented Reality model project was supported by

We support CoSA because it is an important goal of the Klaus Tschira Foundation to interest children and young people in science, especially in the natural sciences. CoSA is successful in this due to the combination of Augmented Reality and pedagogy – an important connection that we like to promote.

We support CoSA because a high-tech region like Styria needs a place that celebrates enthusiasm for technology. Engineers have solved the great challenges of our world in the past. And they will continue to do so in the future.

Georg Knill, President Federation of Styrian Industry

The only constant in our working world is change – and in a consistently positive direction. Technical progress has always brought with it an improvement in the quality of life, as the new CoSA shows. That is why we are very willing to support it.

Josef Herk, President Styria Economic Chamber


As a researcher at AVL, you have to be able to think outside the box, make connections and recognise the essence of a problem. Innovative solutions often arise on the basis of scientific considerations. The Science Center CoSA will make a major contribution to getting young people interested in using technology.

Helmut List, CEO AVL List

Energie Steiermark supports CoSA because we believe technology must be actively experienced and felt. This is an important cornerstone for progress and thus also the basis for a green future. That is as important for us as the supply of sustainable energy.

Christian Purrer, spokesman of the management board of Energie Steiermark, and Martin Graf, member of the management board of Energie Steiermark

The Chamber of Labour supports CoSA because it introduces young people in particular to technology and science in an exciting and playful way. This is invaluable in our increasingly digitalised working and living environments

Josef Pesserl, President Chamber of Labour Styria

As a global technology company, we are shaping the mobility of the future. Innovative technologies such as electric cars and autonomous driving will change our everyday lives. As a partner of CoSA, we also want to impart our fascination for technology to the next generation

 Günther Apfalter, President of Magna Europe & Magna Steyr

Our future starts in your head. Here at CoSA, you learn all that is possible with the natural sciences. Use this opportunity and be inspired by the world of technology! And always remember, you have what it takes to change the world!

Franz Mayr-Melnhof-Saurau, Mayr-Melnhof Holz

We support CoSA because science is an integral part of the SFL philosophy and CoSA is about science becoming an integral part of society!
