The close networking of research, teaching and practice in the field of digital participation is one of our central goals.

Through various events and regular exchange, we want to contribute to sensitizing research to the challenges and issues of society, to strengthen the practical relevance of research work, and to provide impulses for the design of digital participation from a scientific perspective.

Results of our research projects are incorporated into numerous teaching programs. The CDP team is available to cooperation partners for lectures and discussion events. Last but not least, CDP regularly hosts renowned researchers in the field of digital participation from Germany and abroad.


The members of our team are available for lectures at public events as well as events of cooperation partners.

These events serve to make CDP’s research accessible to an interested public. The transfer of current research results into the practice of digital participation is one of the CDP’s central goals


Current findings from our research projects are regularly incorporated into courses.

Here you will find references to courses offered by the Institute for Communication and Media Studies at the University of Leipzig with the participation or guidance of our team.
