Digital Futures Fund

What is the Digital Futures Fund for?

The "Digital Futures Fund for Research" is a funding opportunity for all ZHAW employees who would like to develop or test an innovative idea for digital transformation. Your input can contribute to the area of research. All project leaders are automatically accepted into the digital community "Digital Futures Lab" through their funded project. This enables them to network and exchange ideas on specific topics with the community members.
