Cluster of excellence
The aim of the interdisciplinary cluster of excellence is to support hearing for all. This aim is of great importance, given that 18 percent of the German population - and more than 50 percent of the people over 65 years of age - has a hearing impairment requiring treatment. With better individual hearing diagnostics and the provision with individually adjusted hearing aids the researchers aim to improve the communication situation of the hearing impaired in an essential way - at work, in traffic and at home. To reach this aim, innovative concepts for hearing aid and hearing implant processing and the "assistive" technology for everybody will be developed - including the "hearing aid" in every smartphone, tv or radio.
