R & D Cooperations

We are a significant contributor to a wide range of research collaborations in both basic and applied research with industry.

Current Projects

Advanced Computational Design

  • FWF Special Research Programme
  • 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.

Austrian Blockchain Center

  • COMET Center of Competence
  • 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.

CDL 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.

CDL Blockchain Technologies for the Internet of Things

  • Christian Doppler Laboratory
  • Since 2020

Headed by Stefan Schulte, this CDL explores novel methods, concepts, and technologies for the cross-system application of blockchains and other Distributed ledger technologies in the Internet of Things and beyond. It contributes to a paradigm shift from today’s closed blockchains to an open system in which devices and users can interact with individual DLTs.

Center for Digital Production

  • COMET Center of Competence
  • Since 2016

The CDP supports companies in the digitization and automation of discrete manufacturing and production processes. Particular focus is placed 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.

Rigorous Systems Engineering

  • National Research Network
  • Since 2011

Funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and established in 2011, RiSE aims to move far beyond classical model checking and a-posteriori verification, both in the use of model checkers and in the development and deployment of additional paradigms for the design of correct computer systems. It brings together top researchers in formal methods in Austria in order to foster collaboration and a common research platform.

Secure Business Austria

  • COMET Center of Competence
  • 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.

Vienna CyberSecurity and Privacy Research Center

  • Research Center
  • Since 2019

The mission of ViSP is to unlock the true potential of the city by fostering collaborations between different institutes in Vienna. Through this collaboration ViSP strive to do impactful research and advance the state of the art, securing a pioneer role of Vienna in the research in Security and Privacy.

Virtual Reality und Visualisierung

  • COMET Center of Competence
  • 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.
