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.


New Employee at SCCH

Just in time after the Easter holidays SCCH got a new employee - even if he is not made of flesh and blood but of metal and silicon and consumes a lot of electricity.

Internships for female students and researchers

Job offer

As part of the #nothere campaign, SCCH invites students and researchers to an internship.

Missing female researchers - empty chairs

Campaign #nothere

The Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) wants to inspire more women for software research and starts the campaign #nothere and invites female students and researchers for an internship.

IoT Forum 2018

Focus on Smart Maintenance

The IoT Forum will take place in Vienna on the 17th of May. The SCCH is represented by Dr. Bernhard Freudenthaler, woh will speak about intelligent data analysis.

Innovation Forum

Digitisation and Industry 4.0

This year's Innovation Forum is dedicated to high-calibre presentations, discussions and the exchange of best practices.  Dr. Bernhard Freudenthaler will talk about Big Data, Internet of Things and AI. What is already feasible and where is the journey going?

Artificial Intelligence and Digitization

ALOHA project launched

Current neural network architectures for artificial intelligence are very powerful, but also very complex and computationally intensive. However, numerous applications in industry, medical technology and security are based on so-called embedded systems with limited possibilities for the implementation of algorithms.



International trade fair participation

World's leading fair for industry

From 23rd to 27th April, Upper Austria's non-university research institutions will be presented at the UAR Innovation Network joint stand at the “Hannover Messe Industrie”. SCCH presents its research results on 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
