Ahoi-Digital — Network of Labs
Network of interdisciplinary creative labs as an interface between computer science, civil society, politics and economy. The labs combine their complementary profiles with the claim to (a) be a space and mediation platform for knowledge, skills and experts, (b) support open innovation processes with civil society and companies as partners, and (c) provide application-oriented and lively places for rapid experiments and agile prototypes for all facets of computer science.
The base.camp is a creative lab at the University of Hamburg and supports students in realising projects and offers experimental spaces to try out ideas and frameworks. Scientists from the department of Computer Science at the University of Hamburg assist students in their work. Successful projects are accompanied until the start-up is established and networked with industrial partners even in very early phases. Main areas: Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Security (BASE); Contact persons: Mathias Fischer and Eva Bittner
Creative Space for Technical Innovations
The Laboratory Creative Space for Technical Innovations at the HAW Hamburg is an interdisciplinary platform for applied research and knowledge transfer in the field of human-computer interaction and smart systems. While the laboratory largely finds its roots in computer science, collaborations with other disciplines such as mechatronics, design & art, as well as social and cultural sciences are conducted. Main areas: Interactive Virtual/Augmented Reality, Smart Object User Interfaces, Machine Learning / Data Mining, Science & Technology Studies; Contact persons: Martin Kohler and Susanne Draheim
A Creative Lab is being established at the Hamburg University of Technology, which, based on interdisciplinarity, innovation and regionalism in the field of computer science, will support the university experimentally and innovatively in its goal of developing technology for people in terms of research, teaching and transfer. Main areas: Communication Networks, Sensor Networks, Embedded Systems; Contact persons: Koojana Kulandinithi and Thomas Müller
City Science Lab
The CityScienceLab at the HafenCity University Hamburg is working with partners from civil society, politics, business and science to investigate the transformation of cities in the context of digitization. It pursues a decidedly inter- and transdisciplinary perspective by linking technical issues with social and cultural developments. Main areas: Participation / Decision Support, Place Finding, Urban Platform, Urban Mobility Behaviour, E-Culture; Contact person: Holger Prang
