Sustainable Energy Landscapes and Climate Transformation of Urban Systems
The main objective is to create a trilateral research project on sustainable energy landscapes and urban transformation pathways that lead to a smart city. The project will explore synergies of mitigation and adaptation of rural-urban systems in the areas of climate change, health, migration, and water and energy systems.
Research will focus on developing and integrating sustainable urban transformation, particularly renewable energy and low-carbon pathways. The project contributes to evidence-based policy for assessing the efficacy of local and regional planning instruments on urban climate risks in Hamburg, Shanghai, and Sydney, and examines environmental and health risks associated with climate change.
Doctoral projects, multilateral exchanges, visits, and workshops at all partner universities will also be organized.
