The digitalisation of practically all areas of society is a key area of research at HAW Hamburg. This is reflected in the central importance of digitalisation within the university’s current structural and development plan.

In the IT, Communication and Media research programme, scholars from the Department of Computer Science (Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science) as well as the Department of Information and the Department of Media Technology (Faculty of Design, Media and Information) focus on questions related to digitalisation.

The projects cover topics such as virtual and augmented reality, the economics and public value of radio in cyberspace, and the development of a model for decisions on the relevance of search results based on individual user criteria.

In its research, the Competence Center for Communication (CC Com) addresses the analysis of large amounts of data, automated data evaluation, and interactive data visualisation.
