KWF

Start-ups and entrepreneurs have to think very quickly in the course of their development and network accordingly in order to be able to offer their products and services to international markets. The more supporting infrastructure, financing and services they find, the more promising are their entrepreneurial plans. Positioning Carinthia, Slovenia and also Northern Italy and Styria together is an exceptional opportunity for the potential in the various ecosystems, which can be closely coordinated to focus on their regional advantages and thus together offer a functioning ecosystem. Each region in itself is very strong in certain areas. The weaknesses can be neutralized through the cooperation of the regions. You need an openness to share your experience and expertise with your partners. Together, a strong and visible ecosystem can emerge.
The involvement of all relevant actors has emerged in the past as a key factor for successfully designing the startup landscape. The focus is not so much on the satisfaction of the individual sensitivities, but that every institution or initiative makes its contribution.
It is important that activities can grow out of the start-up community, including the participation of all relevant stakeholders and by connecting to international networks. The KWF Kärntner Wirtschaftsförderungs Fonds plays a neutral, coordinating role in Carinthia, in the StartNet Carinthia, so that the overall system is able to develop well.

Lakeside Science & Technology Park

A thriving ecosystem of collaboration between research & development, education and enterprises - the triangle of knowledge sets the vision and framework for the innovation center in the South of Austria neighboring Slovenia and Italy. At Lakeside Science & Technology Park cooperation is daily business to the 1.300 people gathering in multinational ICT enterprises, SMEs and research oriented companies. It’s rather easy to bump into a robotics-researcher on the way to pick up your take-away lunch in the park’s restaurant, or to get in touch with a drone-swarm on your daily work-out at the streetball court - it might also happen that a bachelor thesis applied in the university of Klagenfurt on campus makes its way to a successful start-up. Short ways between partners and the gathering of research institutions, enterprises and the start-up center build! ease up interdisciplinary approaches - but in the end it’s the people who drive innovation. It is you becoming part of this thinking, where One and One is Eleven!

Joanneum Research Robotics

Robot systems will change many aspects of our business and everyday life, as well as how we implement the automated production of the future. JOANNEUM RESEARCH ROBOTICS as applied research lab provides essential competences in modern robot system technologies. The institute utilizes its human-robot co-working lab-space for hands-on development of novel robotic solutions. Partners from industry and innovators take advantage of this facility to develop demanding manipulation and intra-logistic tasks for a digitized production environment. Advanced sensor systems for robot perception, as well as AI, high performance computing and 5G networking build the scientific and technological basis for our applied research endeavours. Safety and cyber security for robots that will operate with and around us extends our research endeavours towards obtaining trustworthy machine-partners and versatile robotic-power tools. JOANNEUM RESEARCH can act as partner along the full R&D spectrum. The institute’s ROBOTICS Evaluation Lab supports this endeavour as enabling test centre for robot safety.

Lakeside Labs

Lakeside Labs is a non-profit, public-owned research centre on self-organizing networked systems. Research topics are the design of self-organizing networked systems, autonomous multi-robot and multi-UAV systems as well as wireless communication, especially in challenging environments (e.g. industrial sensor networks). A strong focus is on coordination of complex networked cyber-physical systems with methods from self-organization (e.g. swarm algorithms, evolutionary design). These methods are applied to multiple autonomous robots (unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)), wireless communication technologies, as well as distributed coordination of agent-based systems (production, logistics, autonomous cars, etc.).
