The University of Innsbruck Competencies Database (Kompetenzdatenbank - KDB) allows users to query scientific
competencies and to easily facilitate access to available knowledge at the University
It is maintained and supervised by the Transferstelle Wissenschaft - Wirtschaft - Gesellschaft, the knowledge and technology
transfer facility of the University of Innsbruck which supports cooperation between scientists
and companies, especially in the field of applied research.
Requestors can get in touch with potential skill suppliers via a standardized query and
through support by the Transferstelle. Within the framework of the EU funded Interreg IV project "Rapid
Open Innovation" the tool was being developed and tested for the topics timber
construction, Eco Buildings and mechatronics.
In further development steps it will be worked on a substantial expansion of contents
and on the improvement of the tool and the process with the aim to strengthen the
development of joint projects between academia and industry / society.
