Know Center - Austria's Competence Center for Knowledge Management and Knowledge Technologies

  • Description
  • Vision

    • We are one of the lead­ing inter­na­tional research organ­i­sa­tions in knowl­edge man­age­ment and knowl­edge technologies.
    • We turn our com­pe­tences into real inno­va­tions.
    • We pro­vide the (research) com­mu­nity with intel­li­gent Ser­vices and Open Source to pro­mote research.


    • We increase the attrac­tiv­ity of Styria as an indus­try loca­tion by com­bin­ing application-​oriented IT research com­pe­tences and con­nect­ing these with the most inno­v­a­tive companies.
    • We improve the com­pet­i­tive­ness of our part­ner com­pa­nies and our cus­tomers by bridg­ing the gap between sci­ence and indus­try and by trans­fer­ring sci­en­tific results to pro­vide true innovation.
    • We raise EU funds in order to tackle new research and inno­va­tion top­ics and pre­pare our part­ner com­pa­nies for the future.
    • We let our part­ner com­pa­nies take part in EU-​funded projects and thereby enable them to par­tic­i­pate in Europe-​wide research and inno­va­tion net­works.
    • We stim­u­late new research top­ics in the field of knowl­edge man­age­ment and knowl­edge tech­nolo­gies, which result from open ques­tions in industry.
    • We pro­mote knowl­edge trans­fer and com­mu­nity build­ing between sci­ence and indus­try with our annual con­fer­ence i-​KNOW.
    • We coop­er­ate with inter­na­tion­ally renowned sci­en­tific insti­tu­tions and dis­sem­i­nate lat­est sci­en­tific results in our com­pe­tence areas by pub­lish­ing our jour­nal J.UCS.
    • We con­tribute to an increased level of qual­i­fi­ca­tion in Styria by build­ing up human resources who are highly qual­i­fied for both, sci­ence and industry.
