Digitalisation

The University of Passau will develop and prove itself – across all its faculties – as a centre for critical and constructive reflection and research on the Digital Age. The Digitalisation Hub is being established as an open platform for cooperation and exchange among scientists and academics who are keen to engage in interdisciplinary AI research and shape the future of the thematic fields of digitalisation in research, teaching and knowledge transfer. The expansion of the University's faculties with the professorships established under the "Technik Plus" development programme and the Bavarian High-Tech Agenda has created excellent conditions for this.

International and interdisciplinary. The University promotes groundbreaking research through the Passau International Centre for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies (PICAIS). This is where knowledge exchanges with experienced academics and scientists take place, on the campus of the University. The campus becomes an interface. However, the concept also provides room for the promotion of innovative external researchers who can inspire the discourse in Passau.

Excellent conditions for the next generation. To the University of Passau, offering excellent support to its early career researchers is a significant step towards research excellence. This is demonstrated by the successful acquisition of special funding and how it is used. Examples of this are the DFG Research Training Groups 2720 "Digital Platform Ecosystems (DPE)" and 1681 "Privacy and Digitalisation", interdisciplinarily positioned junior research groups as well as the establishment of two certificate programmes in the field of "Digital Technology and Entrepreneurship", also funded by the Bavarian Ministry of Science.
