Research projects

Specialist areas

We offer many services in different specialist areas. Get in touch – we would be happy to support you.

Research and development cooperations

Our research activities are being further expanded by our greater focus on issues relating to the digital transformation (interdisciplinary) and the development of a new research focus area, namely Technology (Advanced and Smart Sensors / Internet of Things). A Centre for Data Analytics, Visualisation and Simulation (DAViS Centre) is also to be initiated. DAVis is the realisation and implementation of profile field 6 (Computational Science) of the cantonal University and Research Strategy.
