Research for the future: The new "Hochdruck" is here!

Dear Readers,

Against the background of challenging developments in the environment, politics and the economy, ever higher demands are being placed on research. Many of these questions can only be solved through collaboration between different disciplines. That is why knowledge transfer is particularly important, both internally and externally. At all three locations of the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences and Arts, we deal with different aspects of the current problems. Our goal is to combine our findings beyond the departments and share them with the world.

In the new issue of Hochdruck on the topic "Researching for the Future", we present some of the exciting projects as well as current developments at our university.

With the following and many more topics:

  • "We need to link digitization with sustainability":
    Ideas for sustainable building at the Creative Campus Detmold.
  • Food for tomorrow – the Future Food Factory OWL:
    In search of the food of the future
  • Building greening to bind air pollutants:
    Doctorate at the Sustainable Campus Höxter of the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences and Arts

Enjoy reading!
