Science and studies

The projects have been partly initiated and realised to support students from various degree programmes at Fresenius University of Applied Sciences. Through practical and scientifically supported methodology, the participants gain very good insights and experience in professional and scientific work.

At Dortmund Hospital, a small study prompted the possible development of a pre-operative VR simulation to help older patients minimise their risk of falling and injury after an operation. The digital training could also alleviate fears and concerns before the operation.

In cooperation with the Association of Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken, a varied introduction on a digital level via VR is being created for future employees. The initially digital introduction is intended to provide trainees with an easier and more interesting start in banking so that they can familiarise themselves with the Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken in times of digital change. 

2019-20 Diversity project in cooperation with the City of Cologne. What prejudices do we harbour and how can we rethink them? With the help of VR technology, new methods are being tested with the Office for Integration and Diversity to get to know Unconscious Bias in virtual worlds.

2018-21 Digital Integration Project (DIP for short) - the Virtual Reality Study to support the integration of refugees is implemented virtually through "everyday scenarios" with significant differences to traditional learning methods. Libraries in the state of NRW are joining forces to participate in the study. The application will not only be applicable locally, but a mobile version will also be developed.

Orbit "Hits and Misses" database (experimental development - semester project for the time being). The project "ORBIT - Hits & Misses" describes an online survey for a 3D database. It is about the individual life path of a single person and its intersection with another life path. Data is to be collected to map the movement of people both spatially and temporally as a 3D network. Project management Prof. Chris Wickenden.
