Research Projects

KLUGER Transfer - Climate - Environment - Health - Transfer

The project's aim is to develop and test new methods and instruments for institutionalised transfer cooperation between non-university research institutions (AUF) and universities of applied sciences (HAW), using the example of global climate and environmental change and associated health effects. A multi-stage transfer chain from basic research via applied research and teaching to societal, economic, and political actors will be developed. Suitable and innovative formats will be designed and implemented to create a sustainable system of knowledge transfer into practice. Accompanying research will record and analyse knowledge transfer preferences of researchers and practitioners.

DINA - Diversity of Insects in Nature protected Areas

The research project "Diversity of Insects in Nature protected Areas (DINA)" is the first of its kind in Germany and aims to address research deficits on the effects of agricultural use in the vicinity of nature conservation areas in the field of applied biodiversity research. Thus, the impact of agricultural use on biodiversity is to be assessed, with insects being the focus of the investigation.
