The Hochschule Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences (HSD) sees its role as a competent research partner in a regional, national and international framework. The university profile is characterized by application-oriented and interdisciplinary research. Close links and networking with practice are therefore ensured. With approximately 8.000 students in 30 courses and seven departments, the HSD is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in North Rhine-Westphalia. It offers a networked teaching and research programme, focusing on the fields of architecture, design, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and process technology, media, social and cultural sciences and economics. Interdisciplinary collaboration opens up new research topics. The HSD has developed a research profile, which is implemented in research institutes and interdisciplinary centers. The HSD works with cultural institutions from theaters over museums to independent art groups. It is a cultural player for the region.

Role in the project

The Role of The Department of Media is one of seven departments at the HSD in the project is to effectively and efficiently combine media technologies, sound and image technologies, technologies in the field of virtual reality as well as closely media-related information technologies and communication technologies. Based on several years of joint work between the collaborators (Geiger, Vormann) in the area of  interactive video installations, advanced user interfaces and musical and dance-related performances HSD will create new urban interfaces and displays for dedicated application scenarios. This will include the complete design process with all different phases from conception, implementation and validation based on a dedicated user-centred design process that was already successfully applied in a number of projects. We want to explore and share this experience with the other partners of the projects.
