By means of practical applications, students are challenged in this exercise to acquire new competences and to reflect on them in connection with the contents of other courses. The selected working materials and research examples provide a reference to the central topics of the course as well as current focal points such as SDGs and digitization.LanguageGermanPublications The publications of Julia Dahlvik written at FH Campus Wien can be found in our publication database, others in the personal web space.
