The Center conducts research on digital media as tools for teaching, learning, research and other contexts of work, but also in everyday social life. CODIP focuses on the consequences of digitization for innovation processes, the testing of digital research infrastructures and the needs-based design of digital tools. At the same time, CODIP trains the next generation of academics and is the mediator of research results relating to digital transformation and barrier-free participation using methods from Open / Citizen Science for TUD and research partners worldwide.  

During the session the centers profile will be presented as the host of this summer school but as well a research facility which develops new methodical approaches toward open science.
