ZHAW digital funds 14 new projects

14 new projects are being funded by ZHAW digital as part of the Digital Futures Fund (DFF). These include projects for internal digital transformation and innovative research projects.

The “Digital Futures Fund” funding program by ZHAW digital is aimed at all ZHAW employees who are involved in digital transformation inside and outside the ZHAW. More than 50 projects have already been funded since 2020.

ChatGPT in teaching
Christian Rapp from the School of Management and Law is following up on a pilot study that examined the use of AI in the preparation of Bachelor’s theses at four ZHAW departments. In the new project, he wants to refine the study, carry it out in as many departments as possible and expand it to include the lecturers’ perspective.

Safer events by simulating the flow of people
David Bernhardsgrütter wants to further develop a software to simulate flows of people so that they can be calculated faster than in real time. The tool makes it possible to identify capacity bottlenecks at events at an early stage and can be used to dynamically manage visitor flows.

An overview of all funded projects can be found on the ZHAW digital website. In 2024, projects can again receive funding as part of the Digital Futures Fund, but there will be some adjustments in the next call.
