Christian Doppler Labor für die Verbesserung von Sicherheit und Qualität in Produktionssystemen (CDL-SQI)

Im Jänner 2018 wurde das Christian Doppler Labor für die Verbesserung von Sicherheit und Qualität in Produktions­systemen (Christian Doppler Laboratory for Security and Quality Improvement in the Production System Lifecycle – SQI) eingerichtet. Die Mission dieses CD-Labors besteht in der Erforschung und Entwicklung von Konzepten zur Verbesserung von Sicherheit und Qualität über den ganzen Lebenszyklus von cyber-physikalischen Produktions­systemfamilien hinweg.

Ermöglicht wird das Labor durch die Mittel des Bundesministeriums für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort und die Industriepartner Stiwa, COPA-DATA, EUVIC Software GmbH (jeweils Österreich) und SMS group (Deutschland).

Die Christian Doppler Forschungsgesellschaft fördert mit den Christian Doppler Labors die Kooperation von Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft. Akademische Grundlagenforschung auf hohem Niveau wird mit anwendungsorientierter Forschung in Verbindung gebracht, die konkrete Probleme aus der Industrie lösen soll. Christian Doppler Labors werden von der öffentlichen Hand und den beteiligten Unternehmen gemeinsam finanziert. Wichtigster öffentlicher Fördergeber ist das österreichische Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort.


Christian Doppler Laboratory for Security and Quality Improvement in production systems (CDL-SQI).

In January 2018, the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Security and Quality Improvement in the Production System Lifecycle was established. SQI’s mission is to both explore and develop concepts which improve the security and quality in cyber-physical production system lifecycles.

The laboratory is financed by Austria’s Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs and its industrial partners Stiwa, COPA-DATA, EUVIC Software GmbH (each Austria), and SMS group (Germany).

Together with the Christian Doppler Research Association, the Christian Doppler Laboratories promote the cooperation of science and economy. In order to solve specific industrial problems, academic basic research of the highest quality is combined with applied research. All Christian Doppler Laboratories are financed by public institutions and the involved companies, whereby the Austrian Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs is the principal public sponsor.
