Part of successful research is always the presentation of technologies, inventions and solutions to the public and to show what influence research work has on everyday life and society. This is why we will be part of the Wiener Forschungsfest in the Vienna City Hall from 20 to 22 March 2020. For a whole weekend, both young and grown-up researchers will have the opportunity to experience research and technology up close. Or as in our case: even to touch!

At our hands-on exhibition booth, we will be presenting our research work in the field of Inclusive Digitalization, where we are developing innovative solutions for the barrier-free museum of the future, which will make art accessible to all visitors. Our solutions include tactile reliefs and an interactive Multimedia Guide for Museum Objects, which can be explored in detail during the Wiener Forschungsfest. In addition, we invite all our visitors to create their own tactile reliefs from modelling clay.
The combination of a low-threshold presentation of our research work for a young and older audience and the opportunity to get active right away and create small relief models with one's own hands is very important to us because it shows how tangible research can be.

Also, we are delighted that our booth was chosen as one of four out of more than 50 exhibitors for the school program, which will take place from March 24 to April 3, 2020, in the Volkshalle in the Vienna City Hall. During these school program weeks, our research results for inclusive art education will be presented to several thousand students.

By the way, admission to the Wiener Forschungsfest is free. We are looking forward to your visit!
