The Corona pandemic has demonstrated the challenges that global health problems can bring. In order to be able to cope with such problems in the long term, it is necessary to approach them from an international perspective of digital health. That is why the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) is offering a virtual workshop series with international experts from the healthcare industry in the run-up to DigiHealthDay-2021. The English-language workshops are free of charge. Those interested can now register at

ECRI offers a total of five workshops on the topic of Digital Health in the DigiHealthDay-2021 series until mid-July. These are carried out by internationally recognised experts from Germany, the United Kingdom, India and the USA. These workshops will focus on patient safety in the context of digital health products, how radiology images can provide business insights, the importance of high-quality health data and its trusted use for health systems learning, artificial intelligence and big data analysis in healthcare, and the need for a telehealth accreditation program.

The virtual workshops are the prelude to DigiHealthDay-2021, an international online symposium, which will take place virtually on 12 November 2021. The events are aimed at everyone who is interested in digital health, whether academics, healthcare institutions, companies and start-ups, authorities or students. Further information about the event can be found on the homepage at


The most important prize for foreign students at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) was awarded by university president Prof Dr Peter Sperber on 10 June 2021. This year the award goes to Daniel Rodriguez Perales, who comes from Mexico. He is being honoured for successful academic achievements and voluntary commitment at DIT. The prize of the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst = DAAD) is endowed with € 1,000.

The DAAD prize, which has been awarded for more than ten years, is intended to help put faces to the large numbers of international students at German universities and to connect them with stories. Daniel Rodriguez Perales’ story begins with his visit to a German school in Mexico. He has had contact with German culture and language since childhood. Especially during several visits on school exchange. Studying in Germany has been his wish ever since. With the start of the Bachelor’s programme “International Tourism Management / Health and Medical Tourism” at the European Campus Rottal-Inn, this wish came true. Due to his commitment in student associations, as a tutor for international students and for an aid project for students in difficult situations, he has become this year’s recipient of the DAAD award. In the meantime, he is in the final phase of this studies and can very well imagine staying in Germany for a subsequent Master’s degree and later working in the health industry. Daniel Rodriguez Perales would like to use the € 1,000 for his Master’s degree. The next DAAD prize will be awarded in summer 2022.


For many young people from the region, the time has come to set the course for their studies. It is application time at the universities of applied sciences in Bavaria and thus a peak period for the counselling centres there. In this context, the Centre for Studies at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) is offering a study information day on 18 June. Pupils and prospective students will be able to find out everything they need to know about studying and higher education. For all those who have already applied, DIT wants to provide decision-making aids for starting their studies. The ViSIT Students’ Info Day takes place online.

The ViSIT will focus on DIT’s Bachelor’s programmes. Professors, lecturers and students will present the degree programmes or give lectures on them. The audience can ask questions at any time. There will be a broad advisory and support programme on the subjects of studies, orientation studies, dual studies and semesters and internships abroad. There will also be the opportunity to take part in a study orientation workshop.

So that every participant can quickly identify the relevant topics and put together their personal programme, the events of the faculties are assigned to five topic clusters: Business, Engineering, Computer Science, Health and English Language Programmes. In order to offer interested parties as many options as possible, all faculties will present their programmes twice at different times. More information is available at
