Methoden und Anwendungen Kolleg (Methods and Applications Collegium)
Methods and Applications Collegium (MAK)
The MAK (Methods and Applications Collegium = Methoden und Anwendungen Kolleg) hosted jointly by Tanscultural Studies and IWR brings together specialists from different fields of expertise with the aim to engage in a research tactical dialogue ("disciplined interdisciplinarity") in order to finde pragmatic solutions to technical problems on the one hand and used cases to test new applications/methos. This can lead to forming ad-hoc task forces of different scholar to resolve a variety of problems at the intersection of science and humanities.
Coordination: Dr. Kilian Schultes

Visitors of the Heidelberg Castle will notice the „Gesprengte Turm“, also calles "Krautturm". It is an impressive round tower from the 1500s, built of red sandstone. The tower was blown up during the french invasion in 1693.
A workgroup formed of associates from different fields of research, has scanned the tower wir a mid-range Scanner, owned by the Geographical institut. and is therefor now able to draw a virtual 3D-Model of the tower.
Using the scan it is possible to replace the broken parts virtually and to reconstruct the process of its blast, concerning the historical primary source and blueprints.
