The Knowledge Management Institute at the Graz University of Technology (TUG) undertakes interdisciplinary research on knowledge management in a broad spectrum of domains, integrating technological and application-oriented perspectives. Leveraging its expertise, TUG aims to make a substantial contribution to teaching within the "Software Development and Economy" Study Program of Graz University of Technology. The technology-oriented research stream focuses on acquiring, managing and applying semantic metadata, relying on technologies such as MPEG-7, RDF and OWL. From an applied perspective, TUG investigates the use of social software in the context of Web 2.0 to build structure and transfer knowledge within and across organisations. A special focus in this area is on contextualizing learning events in the professional workplace.
