Participating in a study

At the IWM, we research how people acquire, exchange or share knowledge, how new knowledge is constructed, and what role digital media play in these processes.


In order to test our study materials and research questions, we are always looking for interested participants. Some studies take place on site at our institute, others are conducted online.


If you would like to be kept informed about current studies at the IWM and if you are interested to participate in a study, please feel free to register in our data base:
