The University of Innsbruck Competencies Database (Kompetenzdatenbank - KDB) allows users to query scientific competencies and to easily facilitate access to available knowledge at the University of Innsbruck.

It is maintained and supervised by the Transferstelle Wissenschaft - Wirtschaft - Gesellschaft, the knowledge and technology transfer facility of the University of Innsbruck which supports cooperation between scientists and companies, especially in the field of applied research.

Requestors can get in touch with potential skill suppliers via a standardized query and through support by the Transferstelle. Within the framework of the EU funded Interreg IV project "Rapid Open Innovation" the tool was being developed and tested for the topics timber construction, Eco Buildings and mechatronics.

In further development steps it will be worked on a substantial expansion of contents and on the improvement of the tool and the process with the aim to strengthen the development of joint projects between academia and industry / society.
