University of Klagenfurt

Offers for cooperation partners and companies

The University of Klagenfurt cooperates with research institutions and companies so as to leverage synergies and to facilitate the generation of scientific knowledge beyond the boundaries of the university. Due to its specific structures, the university is uniquely capable of bringing together different disciplines. Of particular note here is the Digital Age Research Center (D!ARC), which conducts internationally prominent interdisciplinary digitalisation research with its focus on “Humans in the Digital Age”.

Our main areas of research include:

  • Optimisation

In the area of research strength “Multiple Perspectives in Optimization”, researchers at the University of Klagenfurt are working on complex optimisation problems. Modern mathematical methods of modelling, analysis and simulation are used to solve challenges such as route optimisation or energy management. 

  • Drones

Thanks to Europe’s largest drone hall, researchers at the Drone Hub have access to outstanding infrastructure that allows them to make pioneering contributions to new technologies on the international stage. Particular focus is placed on drone location tracking and navigation. Fields of application include, for example, drone missions in disaster areas, forest inventory, drone deployment in industrial companies or the cleaning of large ship hulls. 

  • Multimedia

The ATHENA Lab team is working on new tools and methods for the encoding, transport and playback of live and on-demand video. This involves the use of the http adaptive streaming method, which is used by online video and TV providers. The findings will help support the next generation of high quality, low latency video experiences while reducing storage and distribution costs. 

  • Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity

Emotion recognition with the help of Deep Learning, searching through large video pools or developing efficient logic programmes – researchers at the University of Klagenfurt are involved in the advancement of Artificial Intelligence in a variety of ways. A key focus is on cybersecurity, for example in the field of applied cryptography. 

  • Self-organising systems

The research cluster “Self-organising systems” seeks to understand systems in which constituent entities interact directly with each other and continuously respond to each other and to the environment. Nature often serves as a model for such processes in economics, psychology and technology. The research comes into play, for example, when entire industrial plants are modelled as swarms and optimised in this way.
