Vision and Mission

  Copyright: © Martin Braun

Our present is characterized by profound upheavals. Challenges such as digitization, climate change or the energy transition cannot be solved by technology alone. In modern societies, technological, social and cultural change are closely interwoven. Technical universities are responding to these socio-technical changes by redefining their social responsibility. It is precisely these universities that are able to reflect and accompany the dynamics of modern processes of change and to provide innovative impulses for change.

This goal requires the further development of fundamental perspectives from the natural sciences, engineering, life sciences, humanities, social sciences and spatial sciences into a new form of integrated science. Interdisciplinarity must reach a new level for this, an idea that HumTec has made its central task.
