The Centre Responsible Digitality is organised as a virtual, Hesse-wide network. It links and bundles scientific expertise in the interdisciplinary field of digitality. For this purpose, participating scientists can use various collaboration and transfer formats. Cooperation is carried out across universities and university types. All Hessian universities and several Hessian universities of applied sciences are involved in current activities.
