RESEARCH PROJECTS

INNOVITAL
INNOVITAL
Development of a practice-oriented innovation guide for small and medium-sized enterprises (“Innovation Tool Box”) for the field of brainstorming and selection within the framework of the funding guideline TECHNOFIT (aim: Increase the innovative capacity of structurally weak regions), 2003
  • Building on the requirements of small and medium-sized enterprises, a practice-oriented innovation process model (phase model) was developed. Essential instruments of innovation management were selected and their application was defined along the individual innovation phases and explained in an innovation guide.
EXPERIENCE TRANSFER FROM PRODUCTION AND AFTERSALES PROCESS IN THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
EXPERIENCE TRANSFER FROM PRODUCTION AND AFTERSALES PROCESS IN THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
Research project at the Competence Center VIF – The virtual vehicle Forschges mbH, project partners TU Graz, VIF, Magna Steyr. 2006-2007
  • In the research project, experience transfer process was defined, which ensures that experience values of negotiated projects are collected, structured and positioned for future projects in the correct place.
    In addition, quantitative (especially cost-oriented) evaluations of e.g. errors made in order to prove the profit from error prevention.
INNOVATION-SCAN

Project SEE Web TV
Project SEE Web TV

The aim of the TV-WEB project is to make Internet content available to those who do not normally use Internet services and do not have a broadband connection. The project idea is to use the capacity of the broadcasting frequency spectrum of free digital terrestrial television (DTT) to transmit selected Internet content (such as news, e-services, etc.). This ensures that certain disadvantaged groups or those living in rural areas without broadband access experience a comparable Internet experience on television sets.

The project concept is different from services where the TV is connected to the Internet. Instead, the SEE TV-WEB project is pursuing the provision of Internet content solely through the use of the DTT spectrum.
The tasks of IITF in the SEE TV-WEB project are the analysis of user behavior and the interest of users in this service, the analysis of the so-called user experience in the course of several usability tests through pilot presentations in different partner countries and the creation of a business model which finances Possibilities and business scenarios of the service after project completion describes. IITF is also head of work package 6 entitled “STUDIES & GUIDELINES” and is responsible for the content and timely execution.
