The studio is engaged in the development of digital technologies and innovations to optimize industrial production and services and make them more sustainable.

What we are working on and what we can offer:

Industry 5.0

  • Learning algorithms for predicting maintenance requirements
  • Optimization of production processes
  • Reduce downtime and increase productivity

Internet of Things

  • The networking of machines and devices makes it possible to collect and use data in real time
  • The data is used to optimize processes and improve efficiency


  • Processing and analysis of data directly at the source
  • Latency is reduced and efficiency is increased
  • Edge computing to analyze data in real time: faster decisions can be made and productivity increased

The goal of the Smart Digital Industries & Services (SDIS) research studio in St. Pölten, Lower Austria, is to develop innovative solutions – in line with Industry 4.0 and 5.0 – to derive maximum benefit from digitization. The multidisciplinary team is engaged in research and transfer of technologies, methods and practices to support industrial and commercial production. In addition, it provides digital services that generate or increase connectivity and transfer between subject areas.

Specific research topics include Industry 4.0/5.0 (human-in-the-loop, connectivity, cyber physical systems, Internet of Things) or the transfer of smart and digital technologies between agriculture, food technology and production, or the circular economy. The research findings of this studio also serve as an infrastructural basis for other studios, such as Data Science.

Dr. Stefan Gindl is responsible for the operational management.




The aim of "Empowering Pilots via Adaptive Competency-based Training" is to develop training towards competence-based training and assessment (CBTA).
