Technische Universität Dresden

TUD Dresden University of Technology is one of the largest Universities of Technology in Germany and is among the leading and most dynamic universities in the country. With 17 Faculties across five Schools, it offers a widespread range of 119 degree programmes and covers a broad spectrum of research. About 30.000 students are enrolled at TUD.

The Faculty of Environmental’s profile is unique in Germany and internationally with a strong link to European research. It unites three essential environment-related science fields under one umbrella – Forest, Hydro, and Geo Sciences, and this interdisciplinary and international approach enables significant synergy benefits.

The research activities of the Chair of Geoinformatics focus on geoinformation systems and web-based information and research data infrastructures, smart environmental monitoring and modelling, and distributed spatial analysis. Moreover, it acts as the coordinating unit of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) Consortium NFDI4Earth that addresses the digital needs of Earth System Sciences. It cooperates in international and interdisciplinary networks with the overarching aim of understanding the functioning and interactions within the Earth system and addressing the multiple challenges of global change.

TUD is an associated partner in AquaINFRA and will contribute to several work packages with its expertise – especially in WP6 on Community Engagement and Capacity Building.
