Taking Advantage of New Opportunities

Vice Rectorate for Digitalization and Information Management

Professor Dr. Maren Bennewitz is the Vice Rector for Digitalization and Information Management and is therefore responsible for the process of digitalization at the University. As Chair of the Board of Directors of the Digital Science Center (DiCe), she coordinates the joint work of the faculties and central organizational units on the University’s digital strategy and concrete digitalization projects. Establishing a central infrastructure for high performance computing is one of the priorities for her term of office.

Strategy

A digital strategy cannot exist in isolation, but instead lives on the complexity of the activities taking place in institutes, faculties and central organizational units. We want to collect, pool and coordinate these activities. We created the Digital Science Center (DiCe) for this purpose, a strategic center that uses a participatory approach, close networking of department representatives at all hierarchical levels and a focus on a common, strategically oriented organization of work to react flexibly in response to constantly changing conditions.
