More about organisation:

Lakeside Park is a place of communication and encounter which, together with the adjoining University of Klagenfurt, has the potential to become a quality location for research, development, culture and education of national significance. Some 1,000 people are already engaged in research, development, work, teaching, learning and living here. Following completion of all stages of construction in Lakeside Park 2.0 by 2030, this number will increase to 2,500 people.
As a Carinthia-based innovation centre, Lakeside Park is contributing to developments in quality and therefore to an improved range of research and development offers in science and the economy. The ‘Lakeside’ brand is synonymous with cooperation-based R&D projects in the ICT sector both nationally and internationally and is making a significant contribution to the R&D dynamic in Carinthia.
Lakeside Park is home to the Lakeside Labs, a research and technology association of self-organising networked systems operating within the IT and communications technology field and AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH which develops cutting-edge technologies in the field of public administration (eGovernment, eEnvironment), power supplies, health (eHealth, AAL), transmission networks, payment systems and telecommunications.
The inspiring environment in which the University of Klagenfurt is based acts as a catalyst for innovation among technology and research-oriented companies and has enabled Carinthia to establish itself and expand as a science and technology location.
