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.).
It goes without saying that start-ups and scale-ups are the champions of technological and economic progress. They create the markets of tomorrow and make a tremendous contribution to economic growth and competitiveness. Start-ups and scale-ups are not just buzzwords. Internationally, many enterprises have come to rely on their ability to improve performance in a wide range of industries.
Which is why start-ups and scale-ups are key to the Silicon Alps Cluster. It is here where connections to scientific institutions, SMEs and other industries are forged and where cooperation partners and industrial enterprises benefit from the latest scientific findings and the start-ups’ and scale-ups’ innovative ideas and solutions.
Silicon Alps has been Austria’s Startup Ambassador for two years now and has worked with further European countries on the DeepTech4Good/Scale-EUp2 project, one of the initiatives of Horizon 2020, the world’s largest transnational research and innovation programme. The aim of DeepTech4Good/Scale-EUp2 is to identify 200 European high-potential start-ups in the fields of health technology, smart mobility, smart cities and industry 4.0 and to support their scale-up efforts.
