Our leading research question is:
"Is it possible to develop Mobile Infrastructure concepts which fit the future needs of shrinking rural regions?"
The focus of "Rural Life 2.0" is the research and development of future rural infrastructure especially in Germany. "Rural Life 2.0" states that due to the changing rural demographics new infrastructure solutions have to be designed. The title “Rural Life 2.0“ refers to the new participative standard of the Web 2.0 culture. Our research approach integrates rural populations into the research and design process in order to analyse the existing situation and to find solutions for the future. Therefore we need cross-disciplinary research perspectives and basic development skills from: Design, Regional Planning, Social Sciences, Architecture and Engineering.
"KoFor" means cooking and researching: a scientific gastronomic barter trade where with the help of cooking events people come together for research.
