Research Groups

A broad range of research topics

HPI currently has nine (soon to be ten) research groups and the School of Design Thinking, each headed by a professor, addressing a broad range of research topics. The research groups are also responsible for the main teaching content at HPI. The range of research issues covered is as broad as the interests of the researchers, who bring their core competences to HPI and further develop them here.
