Salzburg Research Forschungsgesellschaft mbH is a research and technology organisation (RTO), located in Salzburg, Austria. The research technology organisation specializes in applied research and development in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT) and New Media.


In 1996, the Telekom Research Center of Salzburg’s University of Applied Sciences and the Institute for Information Economics and New Media merged into the Techno-Z Forschungs- und Entwicklungs GmbH. Back then, the center’s research topics already revolved around interdisciplinary and varied issues dealing with information and communication technologies.

On January 19, 2000 the State of Salzburg became the sole owner of the research organisation, turning it into the “Salzburg Research Forschungsgesellschaft”.
