Excellent basic research, combined with a high level of practical relevance: The area of spatial and infrastructure planning is one of the leading research institutions in the field of spatial and infrastructure planning.
At the Chair of Spatial and Infrastructure Planning, we deal with the potentials and problems of sustainable spatial and infrastructure development and develop orientation knowledge for political-planning action. This includes topics such as climate change and sustainable urban development, regional innovation systems (RIS), critical infrastructures (KRITIS), resource-efficient urban districts (BMBF project RessStadtQuartier) very important. This is also reflected in subjects such as environmental planning, infrastructure planning, system of infrastructures, economic assessment methods and methodology of empirical analysis.
Since November 2016, the area of spatial and infrastructure planning has been under the provisional direction of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans-Joachim Linke. This is used for an even more intensive cooperation in the sense of an integrative consideration of the topics of both disciplines in research and teaching.
