Structure

Hearing4all is structured in three main parts:

1. Research Areas:

coordinate research projects within the cluster. The scientific work is carried out in seven task groups.

Research Area A: Improving Diagnostics (Lenarz, Kollmeier)
· TG 1: Diagnostics (Klump, Majdani)
· TG 2: Audio Neuro Tech (Kral, Debener)
· TG 3: Functional Characterisation of the Individual (Thiel, Dengler)

Research Area B: Better Hearing Devices (Kollmeier, Ertmer)
· TG4: Algorithms for hearing instruments (Hohmann, Büchner)
· TG5: Personalising Hearing Devices (Büchner, Ruigendijk)

Research Area C: Assistive Technology (Doclo, Büchner)
· TG 6: Hearing support for the subclinical population (Doclo, Kollmeier)
· TG 7: Brain-computer interface for hearing devices (Debener, Dengler)

2. The “Joint Research Academy in biomedical engineering and science of hearing and sensory systems”

is responsible for promoting young researchers in the cluster

3. The “Translational Research Centre”

is responsible for Intellectual Property Rights, co-operation with industry, and PR and Marketing of the cluster. The TRC is hosted by HörTech gGmbH in Oldenburg.
