Hub for Internet Research

Together with economic, political and civil-society stakeholders we're exploring digitalisation
in order to bridge the gap between the web and society.

Impetus for the digital society

Digitalisation is innovation. Exploiting digitalisation for society needs
governance of innovation. In order to shape societal change, we first need to understand it.

Lab for digital mavericks

Research meets utopia - we break down boundaries between disciplines, rethink existing discourses and develop new questions to explore the permanent change of the digital.

We are making sense of the digital society

Well-informed actors in politics, business and society are needed to shape digitalisation. We analyse changes, point out fields of action and ensure knowledge transfer so that our research benefits society.

Incubator for digital research networkers

Want to be part of the playing field for digital mavericks? The HIIG offers young researchers
a platform for their interests and strengthens their international networking.

Exploring digital spheres

HIIG is on a mission: We are making sense of the digital society.
While everyone is asking for interdisciplinary research, we have been doing it since the beginning.

European perspective on global issues

In times of rapid change there is great need for global explanations.
We look for these answers by putting on European glasses.
