Deggendorf Institute of Technology
The “Digital-progressive Province” program is concerned with the use and benefits of digitization for rural regions. Students will be enabled to address concrete challenges of digitalization in rural regions based on scientific findings and using scientific methods, and to develop and reflect on approaches to solutions. Together with regional/rural actors and stakeholders, relevant, current topics and challenges are identified annually and worked on together with students in a solution-oriented manner. Students learn to view problems and digital solution approaches from the perspective of intra- and entrepreneurship or social entrepreneurship and to develop socially, technologically and economically viable solutions that can also be established as startups, social entrepreneurship activities and products in terms of sustainability, if necessary. Through interaction in the team and in cooperation with stakeholders, different perspectives on digitization are taken into account.
