In our three main research areas we develop methods and strategies to enable the sustainable building and preservation of urban living grounds according to environmental and climatical challenges of the future.
Scientists of the faculty 2: Civil and environmental engineering are an active part of both clusters of excellence Data-integrated simulation science and Integrative computational design and construction for architecture of the University of Stuttgart, which are funded for seven years by the German research foundation (DFG) with an amount of several billion Euros each.
Furthermore there are existing interdisciplinary research relationships and collaborative research centers with these national and international partners and projects:
- CRC 1244 Adaptive skins and structures for the built environment of tomorrow, spokesperson: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Werner Sobek, ILEK
- International research training group 2198/1 soft tissue robotics, spokesperson: associate dean Prof. Oliver Röhrle, Ph.D., IMSB
- First ERC Synergy Grant of the University "Urbisphere - coupling dynamic cities and climate", spokesperson: PRof. Dr.-Ing. Jörn Birkmann, IREUS
- Participation in further collaborative research centers: SFB-TRR 141, SFB 837, SFB 1253 Campos [DE]
- Starting Priority Program "Robust coupling of continuum biomechanical in-silico models for active biological systems as a preliminary stage of clinical applications – co-design of modelling, numerics and usability", coordinator: associate dean Prof. Oliver Röhrle, Ph.D., IMSB
