Smart living: health and sport
On the Salzburg research scene, there is also a focus on using digital solutions to support healthy living and prevent illness. For example, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Digital Health and Prevention is dedicated to preventing and treating cardiovascular diseases. In addition, Salzburg Research is looking into the best ways to combine motion – including in sports – with digital information.
The Pioniergarage Salzburg is an open workshop where individuals can bring their own ideas to life using tools such as a laser cutter, 3D printer, CNC milling machine, cutting plotter, and electronics. Startups can develop prototypes, young architects can create models, and the creative designs of designers and hobbyists can be realized here.
The Smart Factory Lab at FH Salzburg is a research and knowledge transfer center for intelligent production. It focuses on digital twins, collaborative robotics, and flexible, cloud-based production. Equipped with both traditional and state-of-the-art production machines connected with sensors, intelligent data architecture, and cloud applications, the Smart Factory Lab serves as a playground for researchers, students, and companies.
In the DO!LAB, the first maker space in Pinzgau, inspiration, creative exchange, and mental freedom are of utmost importance. It provides access to 3D printers, CNC milling machines, vinyl cutters, heat presses, sewing machines, various tools, and electronic devices.
Computer-generated images, virtual reality, helpful apps, games, and simulations – they all represent the multimedia world constructed using the latest technology. This field approaches it from an artistic and/or user-oriented perspective. The research conducted by the MultiMediaTechnology program at FH Salzburg combines complex information from the web (e.g., social networks, purchasing interests, media usage, etc.), game and simulation (e.g., player behavior, emotions, swarm behavior, etc.), and mobile (e.g., usage patterns, motion data, etc.) domains and presents it in a multimedia format. Collaboration with the artistic and design-focused MultiMediaArt program at FH Salzburg is common in various research areas.

Detecting anomalies in real-time networks
The timely detection of anomalies in communication networks is particularly important for time-critical applications. The longer it takes to detect an anomaly and respond to it, the more serious the consequences can be. Salzburg Research has developed a software architecture that can detect and respond to anomalies in real time using machine learning.
