LCM -the Linz Center of Mechatronics GmbH is a non-university research organization that operates in connecting the real with the digital world. In this context we simulate and optimize production design processes and digitize real world assessments. We explore and support innovation by harnessing added value creation through transdisciplinary combination and connection of tools and solutions.
1. LCM coordinates the ASSET EU-project. The project pioneered a new form of product information system for consumer in the supermarket. Via a smartphone application consumers can enter their personal preferences regarding, enviroment, social or health issues, and then obtain an compact overview how the products (in front of them) fits these preferences. We tested the solution in retail-stores and aim at expanding and improving the approach with new partners and retailers.

2. At LCM we aim at pioneering a new form of citizen empowerment by enabling users to utilize speciifc expert knowledge without the need of expert related abilities. The tool to be developed, calls for and integrate results from divers disciplines, academia, industry or social contributions.
We build this tool upon LCM's SyMSpace platform and iteratively extend the tool with small research projects and diverse partners.
