The co-working space at the JKU campus pools expertise and skillsets found in academia and in the business community, creating an ecosystem to support cutting-edge technologies, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Located in the 8,000 m2 of open office space, the transdisciplinary research labs and companies at the LIT OIC are united by a common focus on technological innovation and how to apply findings to real-world applications.
