The CDC Research Lab is funded by Volkswagen Foundation as part of the “Niedersächsisches Vorab” program. It is an integral part of the transdisciplinary, cross-faculty “Centre for Digital Cultures” (CDC), which – with its more than 90 international researchers – bundles the research and development activities within digital media at Leuphana.

The CDC Research Lab, as a dialogical and open knowledge centre, serves to promote excellent research and its systematic integration, to develop international networking amongst others via its renowned fellows, and supports young researchers by  attracting new talents.
