Research at Paderborn University: interdisciplinary and transferable!

The University of Paderborn is the University for the Information Society, covering a spectrum of disciplines across the humanities, business studies, natural sciences and engineering.

Interdisciplinary work is absolutely essential in order to tackle complex research problems. For us, this includes the close collaboration between computer sciences and engineering, for example in the form of marketable engineering applications of computer science technologies. The fundamental research in the natural sciences supports these developments in the modern information society. Simultaneously, interdisciplinary science implies the study of cultural and economic developments in the information and knowledge society. These are the subject of our projects in the humanities, the social and business sciences, as well as our educational research and teacher education programs. Technology transfer and the close cooperation with business and societal partners form the final part of this chain, allowing the University of Paderborn to engage in the development of practical research applications.
