Realistic and diverse

To get an idea of the challenges we are presented with by our partners, we would like to give you a glimpse of selected projects. Virtually everything can be found here - from improved vacuum cleaners to new security checks at the airport, to mobile communication systems for nurses in South Africa. Every semester, the HPI D-School accepts new challenges with up to 16 project partners. Over 100 projects have been undertaken by Basic and Advanced Track students since the launch of the program in 2007.

The topics cover all areas of society and include health, energy, mobility, safety, education, finance, logistics and sustainability. Some examples from recent years:
