Contact project – China

Sino-German - Research Center for Environmental Information Sciences (RCEIS) /
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft 2014-2017

Coordinator Helmholtzzentrum für Umweltforschung - UFZ


Aim of the contact project is the realization of a workshop and the preparation of a research proposal focusing on the catchment of a big lake in China. The planned activities compromise water and ecosystem management aspects as well as the impact of climate change on the eco- and hydro-systems evolution. HSWT contributes to the project with experiences from similar projects in the field of IWRM carried out in Germany, Brazil, and South Africa.





REHA-CERRADO, Rehabilitation concepts for degraded soils in the Cerrado biome, Brazil - analysis and recommendations

Ciencia sem Fronteiras (Wissenschaft ohne Grenzen), CNPq/CAPES 2014- laufend

Koordinator: Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf

The objective of the project is to identify relevant topics and to classify studies and their results of the main researches made in the past years in the Cerrado vegetation, focusing on soil degradation and rehabilitation. As result of the study, a guideline will be elaborated with the identification, selection and critical review of techniques for remediation of degraded areas. This guide aims at disseminating knowledge on the subject, both in academic field and for the government sector, which can support programs and incentives for the recovery of the Brazilian Cerrado.






ELI – The European Land Use Institute

BMBF/IB; 2011 - laufend

Koordinator: Zentrum für Entwicklungsforschung, Univ. Bonn

The European Land-use Institute will support a landscape focused approach that

  • integrates landscape related research and approaches from multiple disciplines to create a platform for applied landscape research
  • identifies needs of research and development of tools aiming at simulating natural and anthropogenic processes on the landscape scale
  • supports application and development of tools (models, indicators) for integrated land management and decision support
  • analyzes and integrates needs and initiatives of stakeholders and thus support participative approaches

The European Land-use Institute (ELI) will provide an efficient and powerful platform in Europe to coordinate and realize applied landscape research.

Dynamik von Nähr- und Schadstoffen in Forstökosystemen des Teutoburger Waldes

Universität Münster/Universität Leipzig/Manfred-Engel-Stiftung; 2005 – laufend

Koordinator: Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf; Universität Leipzig

Die Forstökosysteme des westlichen Teutoburger Waldes gehören durch ihre geographische Lage zu den höchstbelasteten Gebieten Deutschlands. Das Projekt hat zum Ziel, die Bedeutung nachlassender Schwefeleinträge (Speicherungseffekt) sowie die Wirkung aktuell hoher N-Einträge hinsichtlich der Auswaschungsgefährdung von Stickstoff zu untersuchen. Zudem wird aktuell die Belastung und Austragsgefährdung durch Schwermetalle (Pb, Cd, Hg) untersucht.
