Scientific Research

Practical project experience and scientific knowledge redefine the knowledge space

cyLEDGE is Austria's leading research-driven digital agency.

We believe that scientific research and validation are crucial success factors for digital communication and interaction projects and invest extensively in gaining unique user, market and product knowledge on our own. 

cyLEDGE is also working together with renowned scientific partners who support us in our high quality research endevors. Running scientific cooperations and partnerships include these leading academic personalities:

Prof. Frank Piller is one of the most influential experts on mass customization and open innovation and director of the institute for Technology and Innovation Management at the RWTH Aachen. He is also the co-director of the MIT Smart Customization Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Prof. Mitchell Tseng is internationally known for his research, publication and speeches on
customization strategies, product design and global manufacturing. He is the director of the Advanced Manufacturing Institute and Associate Vice President of Research and Innovation at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

Prof. Alexander Felfernig is a leading expert on applied software engineering and works at the Graz University of Technology.
He focuses in his research on different aspects of the application of recommendation and configuration technologies in industrial environments.
