The Know-Center is Austria’s competence centre for knowledge management and knowledge technologies, founded in 2001. The Know-Center develops innovative knowledge services based on semantic and content-based technologies as an enabler of knowledge work and knowledge management.
As a connecting link between science and industry, the Know-Center conducts application-oriented research in cooperation with other academic institutions and with companies. It enjoys particularly close ties to the Faculty of Computer Science at Graz University of Technology and to a broad variety of partners in industry, government, and science. Most of the partners have their competences, products and services in the field of knowledge management, knowledge discovery and semantic technologies, thus providing a strong thematic backbone for Know-Center. Beyond these close partners, the Know-Center is also a hub in an international network of organizations in both science and industry.
