Today’s universities are confronted with increasingly complex demands – e.g. digitisation, the emergence of new disciplines, exploitation orientation or transdisciplinarity – which point to opportunities but also to the need for adaptation. “Connecting.Ideas4Research” explores two promising approaches to solving these challenges: The integration of communities of practice and the examination of ethical implications of digitalisation for research practice.

Crowdsourcing: The core idea of the subproject is to generate innovative research topics and questions in participative processes. To this end, exemplary interdisciplinary use-cases from the fields of medicine, physiotherapy, music pedagogy and architecture will be conceived, implemented and analysed.

Digital ethics: In a discourse on “digital ethics” – understood as the ethical aspects of R&D in the context of digitalisation – the need for orientation and measures for universities to deal with new ethical problems are developed. The “Responsible Research & Innovation” approach offers starting points for this.
