To maintain a competitive edge, companies require innovative ideas, new and improved products or services as well as the right market approach. As a company-oriented university of applied sciences, CAMPUS 02 provides comprehensive services for the industry. Therefore, CAMPUS 02’s research mission is to actively support Styrian companies – from the idea to the market.

Um im Wettbewerb bestehen zu können, brauchen Unternehmen innovative Ideen, neue und verbesserte Produkte oder auch Dienstleistungen sowie den richtigen Zugang zum Markt. Als unternehmensorientierte Fachhochschule stellt die FH CAMPUS 02 zu diesen Bereichen umfangreiche Leistungen für die Wirtschaft bereit. Die aktive Unterstützung der steirischen Unternehmen ist der Auftrag – von der Idee bis zur Wertschöpfung.

Link to national or regional initiatives for digitising industry

Styrian RIS3 centers around three core sectors, mobility, clean technology and health tech, and the development across three technical competency areas: material and material technologies; machinery and plant engineering; and digital technologies (incl. sensor and microelectronics).  The technical service offering of CAMPUS 02 R&D Section, specifically its technical focus on automation technology/mechatronics and information technology, is strategically aligned to support the  delivery of these technical competencies within the region; and offers support to organisations in the three core sectors of Styria's RIS3 focus. 

Furthermore, CAMPUS 02 R&D Section is integrated in the national and regional digitalisation Strategies if the Chamber of Commerce, representing the Austrian industry and companies;  more information on this integration can be found here: 

Other projects where CAMPUS02 R&D Section have relevant information are as follows: Interreg SI-AT "Smart Production and Service Solutions", Interreg AT-HU "Smart Up",  Interreg Central Europe "3DCENTRAL".

Service Examples

MAGNA Steyr Fahrzeugtechnik / Automotive

Development of a prototype of an autonomous transport vehicle for C-parts in automotive Industries

The Customer requested an flexible system to supply the production line with C-parts. The challenge was to develop a proper system to the specific demands of MAGNA Steyr. On of the demands was to keep the system very flexible in case of changing the production line. The various demands (which cannot be listed due to a NDA here) could be met by implementing a self learning autonomous system which also communicates with further existing vehicles. One special challenge was to fulfil all security demands (side parking in case of fire alarm etc...) within the development phase. The result fulfilled the expectations of MAGNA and gained the first place in an international challenge for the most innovative MAGNA project world wide.

Berger Medizintecnik GmbH

Berger MedTech developed a digital device to store data in hospitals more efficient to support the daily business of medical support. Request to CAMPUS 02 R&D was to give feedback on the function of the systems (optimization) and calculate some analysis to prove the economic advantage of the system. The technical device was checked by the automation experts for feedback but  the economic analyses for improvement of economic advantage of the product was in the focus of the company support.

Charismatec OG

Charismatec OG was a Start Up founded out of the common development described in the example. The idea was to develop a mobile device to check documents for their specific security properties including NFC function control. The requirements have been defined by an expert of the Ministry of Defence to meet the demand of the Applier (Police, Military). 

The challenges were met by implementing the following elements in a small mobile device: 15x Magnification with high quality glass lenses, 4 Incident light LEDs, 4 UV LEDs 365nm, 8 LEDs for rotating oblique light, NFC reader for ePassport check, 2 AAA batteries managed by an high efficiency microprocessor control for low power consumption. The system was optimized based on the feedback of the document Expert of the ministry of defence and was produced as prototypes for on sent testing. This on site testing was successful an so the company started to produce for the market and is now already present in several European countries.
