Physical-Digital Affordances Group, University of Regensburg


The junior research group “Physical Affordances for Digital Media and Workflows” at the University of Regensburg is led by Dr. Raphael Wimmer. It explores how the unique affordances of physical and digital media can be combined to enhance knowledge work and workflows (more about our goals).

This project is funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts and coordinated by the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt). From 2017 to 2020, the project was funded in the context of the Centre Digitisation.Bavaria (ZD.B).

The group is associated with the Institute of Information and Media, Language and Culture (I:IMSK) and the Chair of Media Informatics at the University of Regensburg.
