This chapter describes some highlights of successful research focusing on knowledge-based and data-driven models for industrial and decision processes. This research has been carried out during the last ten years in a close cooperation of two research institutions in Hagenberg:

- the Fuzzy Logic Laboratorium Linz-Hagenberg (FLLL), a part of the Department of Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems of the Johannes Kepler University Linz which is located in the Softwarepark Hagenberg since 1993,

- the Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH), initiated by several departments of the Johannes Kepler University Linz as a non-academic research institution under the Kplus Program of the Austrian Government in 1999 and transformed into a K1 Center within the COMET Program (also of the Austrian Government) in 2008.
