In the new Institute for Water and Energy Management (iwe), following the university’s internal ‘Green Tech’ mission statement, the issues of water and energy are taken up with an application-oriented focus. The iwe develops innovative and sustainable products and processes, by relying on the expertise of environmental and energy technology, systems and composites, mechanical engineering, digitizing and law. The bundling of know-how results in an interdisciplinary knowledge transfer.
The new competence center has the overall goal of meeting current and future challenges in the areas of water and energy with high-quality scientific, as well as results and implementation oriented research. Work is carried out constantly trying to tap into new teaching, research and services fields, to improve existing, and establish further, skills. Close cooperation with national and international companies, research institutes and institutions of higher levels of government are of great importance.
