About US - Structure of the ZSK
In order to effectively counteract changing environmental conditions, both the causes for climate change need to be reduced and emerging climate change effects responded to in a preventive and intensive manner.
The ZSK brings together the topics of urban and landscape planning, architecture, engineering and ecology in seven subprojects (six running and one finished). The Centre aims to bring together the wide range of skills in TUM’s natural science, social science and engineering disciplines as well as other Bavarian research institutions for interdisciplinary research approaches.
The ZSK is funded by the Bavarian Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection (StMUV) and coordinated at the Technical University of Munich.
It is lead by Prof. Dr. S. Pauleit (Chair of Strategic Landscape Planning and Management) and Prof. Dr. T. Rötzer (Chair of Forest Growth and Yield Science).
