Objectives of the digital transformation

Digitalisation Objectives

TU Wien's digitalization strategy  has defined objectives in the areas of research, studying and teaching, administration and infrastructure which are to be realized. These objectives can be condensed into a number of core topics: digital skills, smart campus, data, analytics & prediction as well as platforms and networks.


[Translate to English:] collaboration

Digital tools can be used to make working together with colleagues and in teams a lot simpler. At TU Wien, various new services are currently developed to facilitate collaboration even more.

Current .dblog posts

The .digital blog offers posts on interesting topics on digitalization matters in general and the digital transformation at TU Wien in particular:

Year 3 of the digital transformation - and now even more so!

Digital transformation naturally always looks ahead, looks for innovative topics and implements new things. From time to time, however, it is also quite good to realize which path is already behind us. And that's exactly what we're going to do in this blog post: We'll take a good look at what we have already achieved and where the journey is headed.

[Translate to English:] Jahr 3 digitale Transformation

A little over three years ago, TU Wien laid down its intention to launch a comprehensive digital transformation process in the digitalization strategy, opens a file in a new window. The .digital office was founded to moderate and accompany this process. And this spring it is already three years since the Rectorate outlined the path and the topics that we have planned for the next few years as part of a .digital roadshow series for the faculties and the central service units. It was not yet clear that a pandemic would shoot across the board and hinder some things but also fuel a lot. But one thing remains the same: We continue along this path of digital transformation with you step by step. And now that a lot just started and we're already working on new topics, it's time for a brief overview.

From digitalization strategy to implementation

A strategy can only ever draw the guidelines, which can then be used to form concrete measures, goals and projects. For a university, these guidelines are based on the major content-related pillars of its tasks: research and teaching. These pillars need a stable basis in order to function as smoothly as possible, and the infrastructure and administration take this into account. And with the students, not only the largest group of TU members is shown, but also the future carriers of this digital transformation. The focus groups, which were set up at the beginning of this process, provide insights into their respective subject areas and offer an interesting exchange when it comes to planning new topics and projects. They were centrally involved in the first call for digitization projects (.dcall 2020) and in the ongoing .dcall 2021 ideas were discussed and prepared in the focus groups.

With the help of these digititalization projects, topics can be tackled at short notice and brought to the ground that might otherwise have had to wait a little longer for financing. The need is obviously there, because 59 ideas were submitted for this call for proposals, eleven of which will now be implemented in the course of this year. In order to be able to better meet the needs of the students, four project ideas from the digitization call in the student context, the Student Life Hacks 2.0, were added.

Faculties often have very specific but also overarching requirements for the digital transformation process at TU Wien. These requirements are often included in the target agreements with the Rectorate. The .digital office has been in regular contact with the deans via the .dTalks since last summer in order to collect and bundle the requirements and problems of the faculties and to support them in processing.

At the heart of the digital transformation: all of us!

What is all this for? you might ask. The aim of digital transformation is to support you in your day-to-day work in the long term through digital measures and to offer some possible solutions to you. Maybe not everything fits for everyone and not every topic is relevant for each and every one of us - but progress is. Take the new systems, programs and platforms as an invitation to try them out, to play with the new possibilities. We already use some things as a matter of course - who still thinks about video conferencing? - with other things we're not sure yet if they really suit us. Some things are necessary to ensure that your teamwork runs smoothly, others help you in your personal organization. What we expect from you? Just try it out and have a say!

Speaking of having a say: You're reading this .dblog post right now. Our bi-weekly posts on digital topics, opens an external URL in a new window are now in their third year and we will continue to keep you up to date. If you want it even more direct and interactive, then visit the TU experts in the Digital Survival Café, opens an external URL in a new window. Every 2 weeks you can discuss different topics with colleagues here. And there are insights into (new) topics on top of that.

And last but not least, an outlook: Our tried and testes .digital update will also be given a new look. I don't want to tell you much more just yet, even if I'm about to burst with anticipation. With this in mind: stay tuned, you will find out here first!
