What can our research group do to help mid-sized towns to strengthen their liveability in the context of digitization? Where do representatives of mid-sized towns see the greatest need for action? And how can we shape a practical, transdisciplinary exchange between research and municipal stakeholders?
After a successful start of the research group in February, the participants went to the country house of the University of Münster in Rothenberge in March for a first workshop on transdisciplinarity. For the research group, the interaction of the subprojects is central to its success. For collaboration across disciplines to work, it is important to understand potential differences in the use of our central concepts and to develop a shared understanding.
We are hiring!
At the earliest possible date, we are seeking to fill six positions of doctoral research assistants in the DFG-funded research group "Future Digital Towns" (salary level TV-L 13, 0.75 fte).
For our research group, we are looking for motivated colleagues of different disciplines, from sociology to computer science, to jointly research and design digitalization in towns.
