Network of Labs
Ahoi-Digital - Network of Labs
Network of interdisciplinary creative labs as an interface between computer science, civil society, politics and economy. The labs combine their complementary profiles with the common claim to be a space and mediation platform for knowledge, skills and experts, to support open innovation processes with civil society and companies as partners and to provide application-oriented and lively places for quick experiments and agile prototypes for all facets of computer science.

The base.camp is a creative lab at the University of Hamburg and supports students in implementing projects and offers experimental space to try out lightweight ideas and frameworks. Scientists from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hamburg provide expert assistance. Successful projects are accompanied up to the start-up phase and are also networked with industrial partners in very early phases.
Focal points: Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Security (BASE)
Contact persons: Mathias Fischer and Eva Bittner
Creative Space for Technical Innovations (CSTI)
