In the summer of 2011 a cooperation agreement on science and education was advanced among the Munich University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule München, HM, Germany), the University of León (ULE, Spain) and the Technical University of Vienna (Technische Universität Wien, TUW, Austria). The agreement, settled in connection to the join participation in the domusBITae innitiative, was also linked to the professorial stay of José María Díaz Nafría (ULE) at the Hochschule München and the related investigation, undertaken together with Rainer Zimmermann (HM), aiming at searching a proper foundation for the interdisciplinary understanding of information, for which a manifesto from an evolutionary perspective is being discussed among the former authors and Wolfgang Hofkirchner.
Though the agreement was proposed at the first place for supporting scientific research, the frame is actually opened to educational activities - as the professorial stay of José María at the HM is to be considered, but also applicable to other programmes of student or teaching mobility -, as well as cultural activities - as the envisaged exchange of university choir ensembles. By these means we consider the domusBITae initiative is enriched including more commitments and better grounds at the level of both scientific research and education.
