Applied research in a nutshell
4.3.2022 | DIT Public Relations
The 9th Day of Research of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) will take place on 10 March. The digital event starts at 1 pm and ends at 3.30 pm. Then the three best posters as well as the best lecture by young scientists from Deggendorf will be awarded.
Anyone interested in applied research at the university can now do so once again for two and a half hours from the comfort of their own desk. Representatives from business, industry and society are equally invited and encouraged to attend. The same applies, of course, to students and prospective students who want to know what topics in particular young researchers are working on at DIT.
A total of ten topics from the areas of Sustainable Materials, Processes and Energy Technology, Intelligent Mobility, Digital Economy and Society as well as Innovative Work and Healthy Living will be presented on 10 March. Each presentation will last just three minutes. "A special challenge for the young researchers," explains press officer Dr Jörg Kunz. He is also in charge of science communication at DIT. "Getting to the heart of complex issues in a concise, understandable and transparent way is not easy," says Kunz. 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 two-way dialogue. The same applies to the posters accompanying the Day of Research. These should make it possible to grasp at just one glance what the topic is about. "The very striking approach," says Kunz, "ensures that people can enter into discussions with the scientists in a very low-threshold way." As every year, prizes are awarded to the three best posters. As in the past, the trophy for the winner 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 9 March via the DIT website: www.th-deg.de/tdf-2022. Participation is free of charge.
