As a research and innovation spin-off of MODUL University Vienna, the Technology GmbH enables university faculty (as the technology experts) as well as hired researchers and developers to work on near-to-market R&D with a close collaboration with the University itself and support existing and future University spin-offs. It was founded in 2015 as part of the exploitation plans of the LinkedTV project, in order to continue to coordinate LinkedTV technology development and promote it to industry. It has access to technology experts from throughout the Department of New Media Technology, which conducts cross-disciplinary research on knowledge acquisition, semantic Web annotation, human-computer interaction, data analytics, natural language processing and multimedia description and linking. Its first project collaboration has been to develop solutions for news topic detection and social media retrieval in the InVID project, together with its commercial technology partner webLyzard technology.

Since then, we have continued to pursue innovative ideas and delivered excellence through various national and European projects such as EPOCH and ReTV. We plan to build on this successful track record and evolve our technologies as part of the upcoming Horizon Europe program.
