Research Projects

Our research activities focus on key issues of sustainable management of water resources. We developed fields of work areas along the urban water cycle dealing with the topics crucial for the future management of cities: energy, climate change, resources and digitalisation.

By systematic integration of these issues into our research areas groundwater, sewer systems and surface water quality, and water/wastewater technology we want contribute to the conservation of quality of life and sustainable ecologically and economically elaborated water infrastructures of cities.

Projects with start ealier than 2007 are available in the project-archive.
