The 8th Day of Research of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) will take place on 11 March. Like last year, this time it will also be virtual. Start is at 1 pm. The event ends at 3.30 pm with awarding the three best posters and the best presentation.

Anyone interested in applied research at DIT can take a digital look over the fence for two and a half hours. Whether business, industry, society or even future students, everyone is invited to take part in the Day of Research. Uncomplicated from the office or from home. A total of eleven research topics will be presented. From the areas of sustainable management, innovative materials and energy, intelligent mobility, digital economy and society, as well as innovative working environments and healthy living. Each in three short minutes. After all, the aim of the Day of Research is not so much to delve into the depths of the respective scientific topic, but rather to create the basis for a reciprocal and, if desired, interdisciplinary dialogue. The same applies to the poster exhibition. The posters are designed in such a way that one grasps what they are about at a glance. This makes it possible to enter into a very low-threshold discussion with the young researchers at DIT. The three best posters will be awarded prizes. As in previous years, the trophy for first place was designed by the design class at the Zwiesel Glass College and produced in the educational institution's own manufactory.

Registration for the Day of Research is possible until 10 March via the DIT website: www.th-deg.de/dor-2021. Participation is free of charge.


The Department of Digitalisation and Innovative Teaching at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) is organising a virtual DigiCamp for all business leaders, HR managers and interested employees on the topic of "Co-Working-Space: Innovative and Flexible Working" on 3 March from 4pm. The event will be held in German. The occasion for the event is the premiere of DIT's co-working space at ITC1 in Deggendorf. It will start operating in March 2021.

The workplace in the company vs. home office is currently a hot topic. "A co-working space has the potential to combine the best of both worlds," says Lisa Geib, Digitalisation Officer at DIT.  Co-working is an integrated and flexible working model in which start-ups, freelancers and other employees rent a flexible workspace in an open-plan office. The focus of co-working spaces is on networking and the exchange of innovative ideas. The advantages are as varied as the concept. For commuters from rural areas, co-working offers working close to home in a modern environment. This work concept can also be particularly interesting for working parents. In times of the pandemic, the needs of employees and, at the same time, of companies have changed rapidly: Home office, virtual meetings plus childcare and home schooling are taking their toll. DIT is leading the way with this topic and is offering five free, project-funded co-working spaces at ITC1 from 1 March.

The virtual DigiCamp shows the possibilities of a co-working space. Several short lectures are planned. The main topics are the opportunities especially for rural areas, co-working experiences from practice and the presentation of the new co-working spaces at ITC1. The programme for the "DigiCamp Co-Working-Space" event can be found on the DIT homepage at www.th-deg.de/en/events.  Participation is free of charge, access data will be sent after registration at coworking@th-deg.de.


A small walk across the road, but a big step for the new Centre for Digitalisation and Innovation. The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) is moving into almost 1,300 square metres in DEGG’S. Already on 9 February, the rental spaces on the first and second floors of DEGG’S were officially handed over to the Faculty of Applied Computer Science and to Immobilien Freistaat Bayern (IMBY).

In the summer of 2018, the Bavarian state government decided to establish a centre of digitalistion technologies at DIT: For around 1,000 new students and with corresponding teaching staff. But where to put all these people? Free offices, laboratories and capacities for teaching are already scarce at the main campus of DIT. Despite the large new building complex at the Danube riverside. DIT continues to grow as planned and they all have to go somewhere, the students, the teaching staff and researchers. “With DEGG’S we have been able to win an excellent partner for our expansion plans,” DIT President Prof Dr Peter Sperber is certain. Even though the university will of course be further decentralised in terms of space. But the DEGG’S is within easy reach of the campus. “And,” says Sperber, “we are symbolically building a bridge to the city. Teaching and research, especially at a university of applied sciences, doesn’t belong in the ivory tower, after all.” The assimilation of science into society is definitely desired. This is also achieved by living and working next door to each other. The still relatively young Faculty of Applied Computer Science with courses in Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security or Quantum Computing will be on the move in DEGG’S in future. The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences  is also at home in DEGG’S with its sports sciences. They have been since autumn 2014.

Sabine Zimmerer from Kintyre Management GmbH is also highly satisfied with the long-term partnership. The manager is pleased that DEGG'S is now home to the university on such a large scale. The conversion of the former practice areas in DEGG'S also involved mainly companies from Lower Bavaria, with architect Albert Emberger from the EIS-Plan office and the companies baierl + demmelhuber Innenausbau GmbH, Freise Elektrotechnik and GEIGER Gebäudemanagement & Technik GmbH. "That is also important to us," explains Zimmerer. The now freshly converted partial areas are exactly what DIT was looking for, he says. A perfect match for both partners. The lease will run for ten years. DIT's growth can continue.
