The total of 19 existing Leibniz Science Campuses in Germany enable Leibniz institutes and universities to cooperate in a thematically focused manner in the sense of a regional partnership. The aim is to conduct strategic research, promote interdisciplinarity in projects and methods, increase the visibility of the respective location and strengthen its research profile.
To achieve this goal, the Leibniz Institute for Educational Media | Georg Eckert Institute has been collaborating with the Technische Universität Braunschweig, the German Maritime Museum |DSM Bremerhaven, the Haus der Wissenschaft Braunschweig, with the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences and the University of Art Braunschweig (HBK) in the "Leibniz Science Campus - Postdigital Participation - Braunschweig" since 2019. In this campus, researchers from the cultural, social and technical sciences come together with local and regional stakeholders in Social Living Labs to jointly research, design and reflect on the topic of digital participation in education and urban coexistence. The focus is on the development of digitally supported forms of participation with a regional focus as well as the design of public, supra-regional discourses on (post-)digitality and participation.
