What ideas guide HAW Hamburg as a university in the digital transformation process?
At HAW Hamburg, digitialisation is viewed not simply as a technological development, but also in terms of its societal, cultural and economic dimensions. Based on this understanding, HAW Hamburg aims to actively shape the digital transformation process. This means accompanying the changes and processes associated with digitalisation from an academic perspective, addressing the opportunities and risks in our teaching and research, engaging in targeted dialogue with the public, and providing impetus and input.
As a teaching and research facility, HAW Hamburg's vision is to be a competent partner on issues related to digitalisation for business, society and political actors in the Hamburg region. It also aims to develop application-oriented solutions to the societal challenges posed by digitalisation, within and across disciplines and through both local and global dialogue.
HAW Hamburg's digitalisation strategy clearly outlines the university's fundamental understanding of digitalisation. It is the basis for HAW Hamburg's development in the digital transformation and provides an action and orientation framework for how HAW Hamburg can successfully reach its goals. The strategy is supplemented with an action plan containing existing and new measures, activities and projects intended to achieve the strategic goals.
