Salzburg Research

People, products and machines are on the move and increasingly wirelessly networked. This enormous dynamic offers new opportunities for society and the economy. With Motion Data Intelligence we make the movement of things measurable, link them reliably, develop software for meaningful analyses and thus increase added value and efficiency.

Salzburg Research, as an independent research institute, offers know-how and sustainable solutions for complex challenges in the Internet of Things and is the first point of contact in the areas of mobility & smart region and health & sports. We are a think tank for innovative companies from a wide range of industries and the public sector – internationally oriented and committed to the region.

The institute was founded in 1996 and is located in the Science City Itzling. The state of Salzburg is the sole owner of the non-profit GmbH. Salzburg Research employs around 70 people and has an annual turnover of around 6 million euros.
