Description

Johanna Kluge is a research assistant at the Human-Computer Interaction Center, shortform HCIC, and the Chair of Communication Science at RWTH Aachen University. She studied sociology and linguistics and communication science at the RWTH.

Her research at HCIC focuses on communication and acceptance of innovative technologies. She researched on topics such as communication and acceptance aspects of medical technologies but also renewable energies.
In the project "Face" she researched on the development of a sensitive information and communication strategy, for patients with congenital or growth-related deviating jaw positions, using technical support.

Another focus of her work is research in the field of technology acceptance of renewable energies: In the project "TIGER", funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, she researched which factors influence the acceptance of deep geothermal energy, and how communication needs of the population can be met and taken into account when planning future geothermal energy projects.

In 2018 Johanna Kluge completed her doctorate on the topic of "Protesters as a target group for communication in energy and infrastructure projects", in which she investigated the extent to which protest can be described as an individual characteristic and, based on this, how meaningful dialogues can be designed in the context of energy and infrastructure projects.

Dr. Johanna Kluge is currently researching in the project SITRA 4.0 - Sustainable Safety Culture as a Transformation Approach for Industry 4.0 in SMEs. The focus is on the question of how work can be made safe in the changing digital environment and how security and (stress) prevention can be integrated into a modern and future-oriented corporate culture that focuses on the employee.
