Joanneum Research
»Institut for Robotics & Mechatronics«

The »Joanneum Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics« is one of six Joanneum Research Institutes. It is positioned at the crossroads of fundamental research and applications in the physical world. Its orientation can certainly be described as interdisciplinary: between research areas (control engineering, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, algebra), generations (teachers, students, pupils) as well as between research, industry and smaller companies.
