Research Day 2017

For the third time, following 2013 and 2015, the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Science is organising a Research Day at its campus in Sankt Augustin. Scientists from all departments will be presenting their research projects to the public on 18 May. The wide bandwidth of research topics is demonstrated in the variety of exhibits and posters.

Research projects (selection)

  • The Safety and Security Research Institute and the Institute for Detection Technologies are presenting exhibits for container monitoring in the C-BORD project and a test portal in the RE(H)STRAIN project.
  • The Department of Management Sciences is presenting “MobilAssist”, a training and information system based on Kinetic 2.0 to support people with dementia and their relatives.
  • The Institute for Technology, Renewables and Energy-efficient Engineering (TREE) will be represented at the Research Day with at least six exhibits. Professor Alexander Asteroth will be presenting the streamlined Velomobil Stella (Stella: efficient mobility research project). Visitors to the TREE stand can also get hands-on with innovative materials such as Lignin, Puzzolane and dental composites and admire a camera system for 3D measurement for component testing. The dynamic laboratory in the machine hall is opening its doors to showcase the new “Shaker” vibration test bench, among other things.
  • The Department of Computer Science is demonstrating a hacker attack on smart-home components (Multimedia Communication Laboratory at H-BRS). The demonstration involves visitors to the stand.
  • The Institute of Visual Computing is also represented with a range of demonstration items at the research show: EPICSAVE (training for paramedics using virtual reality) and “Serious Games” are among the projects presented.
  • Professor Johannes Mockenhaupt from the Department of Social Security Studies is answering the question: “What does stress sound like?” This makes HRV parameters audible.

Accompanying programme of events

At the “Knowledge is tasty” cookery show, two professors from H-BRS will be working with research associate and amateur chef Argang Ghadiri to conjure up their favourite recipes and chatting about their research projects in layman’s terms.

The ScienceSlam starting at 18:00 in the Audimax and presented by an H-BRS alumnus is an entertaining conclusion to the Research Day. Various ‘slammers’ will be putting the spotlight on science in their own different ways. Ticket sales for the Slam open in mid-April from the University and District Library at both sites (5 euros). Students can get free tickets on presentation of their student ID card.
