Research Studios Austria Forschungsgesellschaft offers customers and partners applied research and development in digital intelligence. RSA FG manages the transfer of knowledge and technology from universities to markets and is organized in six research studios with research locations in Salzburg, Vienna and Linz.

Since 2003, RSA FG has acted as an agile, non-university research institution, bringing applied research from universities into markets and society. RSA FG is governed by EU law and regulations regarding technology research organisations. RSA FG aims to increase the added value of innovations through professional project management, iterative prototyping and continuous improvement of user and customer benefits. Its focus is on all areas of digital intelligence and ICT.

The competencies of its research teams include the fields of geo-informatics, pervasive computing, smart agents, semantic technologies and data science as well as artificial intelligence and social micro learning.

RSA FG is organized in research studios, which are flexible, market-oriented teams of five to twenty researchers led by renowned scientists who develop application-oriented and customer-oriented research:

The RSA FG has six locations in three Austrian cities with the following research units:

  • Research Studio iSPACE – GIScience for Smart Settlement Systems, Energy and Mobility, Salzburg
  • Research Studio DSc – Data Science, Data Analytics, IR, ML, Data Market Tech, Wien-Salzburg
  • Research Studio PCA – Pervasive Computing Applications, Aware Systems, Cognitive Computing, Linz- Wien -Salzburg
  • Research Studio iSPACE – GIScience for 4D Environments, IoT, Industry 4.0 Assistive Tech, Salzburg
  • Research Studio SAT – Smart Applications Technologies, AI, Sematic Web, Matching Tech, Wien
  • MoKnowLab – Mobile Knowledge Lab, AI based MicroLearning, Linz-Salzburg-Wien

The primary cooperation partners of RSA FG are the Paris Lodron University Salzburg and the University Mozarteum Salzburg. RSA FG is continuously working to optimize its unique position in research methodology and organization of iterative, rapid prototyping and modular iterative refraining (MIR).

International companies as well as public administrations in Austria, the EU and beyond implement its technologies and solutions. More than sixty start-up companies also use them.

RSA FG has developed new paradigms in digital intelligence applications such as MicroLearning (2005), Web of Needs (2011) or Attention Aware Systems (2018), and has launched a series of spin-offs.
