Four concerted activities, each being researched by interdisciplinary teams, provide the structure for application-oriented project work: Adaptive Communication; Interaction and Education; Mobile Solutions and System Quality and Information Security. The 13 spin-offs founded by the TZI and providing some 220 additional jobs alone demonstrate the extent to which our research focuses on a user-oriented approach.
