Data Science & Software Science

Partner for industry and research

Research at Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) concentrates on equal footing in Data Science and Software Science. The synergy of Data Science and Software Science at SCCH is an important success factor. 

As a COMET competence center, SCCH conducts cutting-edge research on an international level. Together with our scientific partners, especially Johannes Kepler University Linz, SCCH strives toward leadership in the future-oriented fields of digitalization and artificial intelligence.


Instandhaltungstage 2018

SCCH introduces Predictive Analytics Tool

From 10th to 12th April 2018, experts and practitioners will meet at the Instandhaltungstage in Salzburg. The motto of the event is "Excellent maintenance as THE engine for manufacturing companies".

IOT Flagship Project

Started successfully

The public kick-off of the Austrian flagship project IoT4CPS took place at TU Vienna on February 1, 2018.

New publication

In IEEE Software

In the January/February 2018 Issue of IEEE Software is a contribution of Atif Mashkoor and Miklos Biro available. It covers the topic Software Safety and Security Risk Mitigation in Cyber-physical Systems.

Long Night of Research

Experience research up close

On April 13th it's time again! Visitors can gain a unique insight into research.  At the Long Night of Research, the SCCH will show two different areas of application for software use. One example is how to predict the condition of a machine and optimize maintenance, and in the second example we show how to use data glasses optimally in production operations.

IoT4CPS Kick -Off Event

Austria's flagship project

The IoT4CPS project aims to develop guidelines, methods and tools for secure IoT-based applications in the areas of Connected & Autonomous Vehicles and Industry 4.0. IoT4CPS focuses on the development, production and operation of safe components and applications for connected and autonomous vehicles.The workshop will be held in Vienna, at 1st of February 2018.
