Advanced Computational Design

  • Special Research Program
  • Since 2020

The SFB “Advanced Computational Design” addresses the research question how to advance design tools and processes through multi- and interdisciplinary basic research in the areas of digital architecture, integrated building design, computer graphics and virtual reality, discrete and applied geometry, and computational mechanics.

AI and Optimization for Planning and Scheduling

  • Christian Doppler Laboratory
  • Since 2017

Headed by Nysret Musliu, the project develops innovative problem-solving techniques based on the synergy of AI and optimization. These methods use machine learning for automatic selection, configuration and design of algorithms. New strategies based on the hybridization of methods from both fields are proposed.

Bilateral AI

  • Cluster of Excellence
  • Since 2024

BILAI unites leading AI experts from TU Wien, JKU Linz, WU Wien, TU Graz, Universität Klagenfurt, and ISTA. With a funding of 33 Million Euros, BILAI will run for at least 5 years, with the possibility of extending the project for up to ten years and 70 Million Euros of funding in total, making it one of Austria’s highest-funded research projects to date.

Austrian Blockchain Center

  • COMET Competence Center
  • Since 2019

The Center’s mission is to be the one-stop-shop Austrian Research Center for Blockchain (and related) technologies to be applied in industrial applications such as IoT, financial, energy, logistics, government and administrative applications. The results will be the key to creating new jobs and establishing Austria among the top ten innovative countries in Europe.

Blockchain Technologies for the Internet of Things

  • Christian Doppler Laboratory
  • Since 2020

Headed by Stefan Schulte (now at TU Hamburg), the project researches novel methods, concepts and technologies for the cross-system application of blockchains and other Distributed-Ledger-Technologies (DLTs) in the Internet of Things (IoT). The lab cooperates with Austrian partners Pantos and Bitpanda, and Germany’s IOTA Foundation.

Center for Digital Production

  • COMET Competence Center
  • Since 2016

The CDP supports companies in the digitization and automation of discrete manufacturing and production processes. Particular focus is on the needs of SMEs and the challenges resulting from the processing of small lot sizes. The portfolio includes virtual mapping of products and production systems, automation of design tasks, and machine-to-machine communication including sensor integration.

Recommender Systems

  • Christian Doppler Laboratory
  • Since 2022

Headed by Julia Neidhardt, the project develops methods to model and predict the behavior of various interrelated outcome dimensions (accuracy, diversity, novelty, and serendipity) and biases, taking into account different domains and a multi-level view of users (individual, group, and network levels). The lab cooperates with Falter Verlagsgesellschaft m.b.H. and YKMB Software GmbH.

Secure Business Austria

  • COMET Competence Center
  • Since 2006

SBA Research, founded in 2016, is a research center for Information Security funded partly by the national initiative for Competence Centers for Excellent Technologies. Within a network of more than 70 companies, 15 Austrian and international universities and research institutions, SBA works on research challenges ranging from organizational to technical security to strengthen Europe’s cybersecurity.

Security and Privacy by Design

  • Special Research Program
  • Since 2022

The SFB “SPyCoDe” creates technological foundations for realizing the principle of “Security and Privacy by Design,” providing companies with tools to build complex, inherently secure, and privacy-protecting systems. This research is a cross-cutting topic in computer science, combining groundbreaking insights in logic, system security, and cryptography.

Security and Quality Improvement in the Production System Lifecycle

  • Christian Doppler Laboratory
  • Since 2018

Headed by Edgar Weippl (now University of Vienna), the project researches and develops concepts to improve security and quality across the entire life cycle of cyber-physical production system families. The lab’s corporate partners are SMS Group, Software Quality Lab, STIWA, EUVIC, and COPA-DATA.

Virtual Reality und Visualisierung

  • COMET Competence Center
  • Since 2000

Founded in 2000, VRVis is Austria’s leading research institution in the field of visual computing and operates innovative research and development projects in cooperation with industrial companies and universities. More than 70 experts do fundamental and applied industrial research, create vulnerable research prototypes, and develop software.
