“Sustainable Urbanism” These two words represent the biggest challenge and the biggest hope of our generation. The Institute for Sustainable Urbanism (ISU) seeks to explore, co-design, engineer, and promote all strata of sustainable development.

Cities play a crucial role in confronting the challenges of real sustainability in our collective future. By sustainability we mean the long-term viability of our society, encompassing factors such as the social and economic flourishing of people, responsible resource-consumption, livability of the habitat, and the thriving of the natural environment. By urbanism we mean all of the systems, members, and forces, visible and invisible, which constitute today’s interconnected, globalized society.

Cities, after all, are the biggest consumers of natural resources, including human, and also some of the most vulnerable places threatened by climate change. But they are the nexus of power, influence, human and natural resources, culture, ideas, and creativity. As such, cities are key sites of opportunity in making steps toward real sustainability.

The Institute for Building and Solar Technology teaches and researches at the interface of passive and active building components in architecture. The aspects of building physics and materiality of buildings as well as technical building equipment and energy supply as adjusting screws of climate-neutral building are the focus of the considerations. The aim of the  applied building research is to develop strategies for districts  and buildings that create sustainable living space with robust construction methods and simple, low-tech systems. The focus is on the simplicity of the systems through a holistic view of facade design and quality, technical supply and networks in order to achieve durability and a high degree of recyclability within the lifecycle of the materials. In addition to research on CO2 neutrality in construction and operation at the building and urban level, as well as strategies to generate indoor climates at the macro- and micro comfort level with low-tech concepts, the institute focuses on the methodology of planning processes with the aim of developing robust and sustainable buildings.

The Chair of Sustainable Manufacturing & Life Cycle Engineering provides a wide range of core competencies in the fields of Sustainability in Production and Life Cycle Engineering. We developed the concept of Total Life Cycle Management which serves as framework for our  research and education activities which take place in close cooperation with industry.

The chair is part of the Institute of Machine Tools and Production Technology and we are embedded in the Technische Universität Braunschweig. Due to the global scope and complexity of our research areas, international cooperation is an essential issue for us. As a major cornerstone of that we form the Joint German-Australian Research Group “Sustainable Manufacturing and Life Cycle Engineering together with the Life Cycle Engineering and Management Research Group of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

At the heart of the DGNB organization lies its association comprising approximately 1,200 members. It’s these members who make the DGNB Europe’s biggest network for sustainable building. These members also allow the association to reflect the interests of the entire building and property industry value chain. So they include architects, engineers, construction planners and consultants, but also project managers, development managers, investors, building contractors and the providers of building services. Then there are local authorities and trade associations, as well as the producers of building materials and companies from other sectors of industry. These members may not necessarily see construction as their core business, but they do promote sustainable building concepts in their own properties. Our members range from individuals working in an office to global corporations.

The association works in partnership with numerous domestic and international organisations, also supporting a wide variety of initiatives that promote more sustainability in the environment we build around ourselves. For example, the DGNB is the official German representative of the World Green Building Council. As a non-governmental organisation, the DGNB acts independently and is not swayed by the current political climate. It does however work on a number of issues with various decision-makers in politics – on a federal, state and municipal level – in order to add weight to sustainability in public debate.

As a joint institution of the DAAD and Tongji University, the Chinese-German University College has been the most successful science exchange project between the two countries since it was founded in 1998. In a period of two to three years, students from all over China at the CDHK obtain a master’s degree in the faculties of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, vehicle technology and economics (with commercial law). For some years now, more and more German students have been studying at the CDHK. Around 100 German master’s students are expected in winter semester 2014/15, two thirds of them in economics and industrial engineering.

The 23 endowed chairs, which are financed by internationally renowned companies, are unique. The donors provide excellent study conditions by equipping lecture rooms and laboratories and offer students extensive industrial contacts. In addition to industrial funds, the CDHK is funded by the Federal Foreign Office (AA).
