At the workshop "Green Transformation of Industrial Cities" on 18 January, Prof. Matthias Kiese presented insights on innovation and regional transformation capacity.
The transformation of metropolitan regions offers challenges and opportunities for achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The mission of the Institute of Geography is to advance scientific understanding of the developments and design options of spatial transformation processes in metropolitan regions.
Research and teaching at the Institute of Geography focus on three main areas: Resilient Cities, Smart Cities, and Green and Equitable Cities. These focal areas are addressed in close cooperation among the 14 working groups and across the thematic fields of Human Geography, Physical Geography, Geography Didactics, Geomatics and Environmental Analysis and Planning.
