COVID-19 Effects on the Printing Industry

Under the supervision of Professor Gunter Hübner, PMT students in the “Product Development” course are examining the effects of COVID-19. In cooperation with Intergraf, students conduct interviews and surveys to address the question, “What are the global economic and social effects of COVID-19 on the print and media industry?”

The project will conclude in December 2020 with the production of a book. PMT students using technology at HdM with the kind support of the MVK (Medien-Versicherung Karlsruhe) will realize the final product. The book will be publically displayed the international trade fair, drupa 2021, in Düsseldorf. As well as the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021. Additionally, readers will have access to an online publication..
