 Briefly describe your organisation
FAW was initiated by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Roland Wagner as a Research Institute of the Johannes Kepler University of Linz.

Since February 1992 FAW has been located at the University of Linz and at the Softwarepark Hagenberg 25 km north-east of Linz (Upper Austria). Most of the staff (about 30 people) are working at FAW-Hagenberg. FAW has two further locations in Vienna (Technical University of Vienna) and Prague (Technical University of Prague).

In 1997 the research institute was integrated into the organisation of the university and is now an independent institute of the Johannes Kepler University of Linz:
Institute for Applied Knowledge Processing

Since its foundation more than eighty projects with research partners and partners from trade and industry have been finished successfully. These cooperations are the basis for an extensive research work at FAW and practice-oriented teaching at the University.
