Research at the Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences is application-oriented, interdisciplinary and aimed at strengthening the technology region of Heilbronn. Our activities are founded on trust-based relationships with the strong regional players from business and society.
“Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences conducts research into the subject of electric mobility networked with participants in the region. That is our goal.”
“Logistics, particularly its subdivision of intralogistics is characterised by increasing automation of investment-intensive conveyor and storage equipment. In the context of Industry 4.0, simple material flow elements (driverless transport vehicles, shuttles, cranes etc.) are becoming complex systems due to parallel processes and adaptive algorithms. The validation of such systems and their controls, taking into account many internal or external factors, is essential before investment. The goal of this professorship is to make a contribution to the development and validation of control and maintenance strategies of complex logistics systems.”
“With the model of research professorships at universities of applied research, HNN with its Education Campus is laying down a significant foundation throughout Germany, combining in a purposeful way the requirements of academic rigour and practical relevance, which are essential for successful research.”
“Artificial intelligence is not coming – it’s already here. Let's be part of shaping it to make the best use of this technology for us humans!"
“CO2 emissions must be drastically reduced in all sectors and above all fast. “I am certain that with hydrogen and the fuels produced from it, we will be able to decarbonise the transport sector quickly and economically. It is great to be participating in this task of the century!”
"Tourism in all its forms makes a significant economic and social contribution that is often not properly perceived in public debate. I would like to take this importance into account, especially in a regional context, with socially and scientifically relevant research and thus support the development of tourism."
“Research is the initial spark for innovations and thus the guarantor for the social prosperity of our high-tech region.”
“Digitalisation has a great deal to do with us as people, because it is the work processes that we are redesigning – also and especially in medicine."
“My research is concerned with sustainable business systems in the wine industry, because it is very close to my heart and I want my work to contribute to the industry and its companies so that in future they and their children will still be able to prosper from it."
“My motivation as a researcher is to make people cleverer and healthier through the development and use of innovative software!”
“In my research I am concerned with the psychological aspects of the design of interactive technologies. My focus is on the technological development process, I research how people and IT teams can develop their full potential or how to enable a positive user experience for various target groups.”
“The interaction and collaboration between people and technology is a very exciting, innovative and interdisciplinary field of research. New technologies such as virtual and augmented reality are increasingly finding their way into all areas of our lives. These new technologies have to be developed and adapted to the needs of people and their tasks.”
"In order to even begin to understand the complexity of our brain, we have to think beyond disciplines and individual methods. All of this is held together by computer science, which lays the foundations for this research by means of data collection, storage and processing."
“The digital transformation places people at the centre and finds effective and economic solutions for the medicine of the future.”
“We research and develop almost exclusively topics of which we are convinced that we can really put the results on the road in a useful way in the short and medium term"
“The freedom which the introduction of the research professorship at HHN offers me to implement my research plans is superb. “I think it’s great, that I can put even more commitment into my favourite occupation.”
“My research team and I want work with passion, creativity, care and stamina to open up new paths in sensor technology and sensor data processing for the benefit of our society.”
“Hidden paths are waiting to be discovered off the beaten track. My goal is to make them useful!”
“Nothing is too wonderful to be true, if it be consistent with the laws of nature; and in such things as these, experiment is the best test of such consistency”. This quotation from Michael Faraday corresponds to my personal attitude and motivation towards applied research and development."
“Progress in materials engineering and science has a high relevance for industrial applications, because here the potential for important subjects such as innovative strength and competitiveness can be implemented. Materials also have a societal significance in answering the question how energy saving, CO2 reduction and conservation of resources can be implemented. These topics can be dealt with even more intensively within the framework of my research professorship than was previously possible.”
