The AJAP II project aims to assess the suitability of environmentally friendly measures to combat Asian bush mosquitoes. It also examines how the human population can be involved in the implementation of the measures and how they are accepted.
Regional sustainability as a research topic raises many questions regarding methodology and subject matter. In this proprietary project, ISOE developed a concept for regional sustainability around the example of water.
The project tracked the deployment of funds from the Hessian groundwater fee in Hessian communities, evaluating it for efficiency. The interdisciplinary research group was able to ascertain overall success for the initiative within the funding criteria.
The team investigated the use of flame retardants in Germany on the basis of selected products. These included products from the categories of insulating material and polyurethane foam, construction materials for rail vehicles, printed circuit boards, basic materials for electronics housing, and mattress/upholstery fabrics.
ISOE compiled this exploratory study for the "Social Ecological Research" funding programme of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The scientists ascertained research needs for sustainable development in water resource management.
ISOE accompanied the Consumer Center of North Rhine-Westphalia in drafting its position in the debate on liberalisation and privatisation of the water market.
The goal of the project group was to develop strategies and instruments that enable municipal decision-makers to take forward-looking action in the current process of transformation to the infrastructure systems.
In the Wasserbedarfsprognose 2030 project ('Water Demand Forecasting 2030'), ISOE and COOPERATIVE Darmstadt drew up a forecast for water demand in the area supplied by the Hamburg Waterworks (HWW).
In order to render the sustainability performance of German water utilities measurable and evaluable, the team identified operational figures which it compiled into a catalogue.
The scientists of the demons junior research group examined links between demographic developments, needs and supply systems.
The project start was dedicated to developing precautionary action strategies to reduce the input of active pharmaceutical ingredients into water bodies.
In the Wasser 2050 project, the team examined sustainable system solutions for water resource management.
The competency map for water engineering and water resource management in Hesse was developed to present profiles of Hessian companies and facilities operating in the field of water.
The netWORKS group project developed work aids and decision-making tools to assist municipalities in planning and investing in water resource management.
The team of the start2 project set out to develop systemic action strategies to strengthen risk prevention in the context of water pollution control.
ISOE developed a communication strategy for the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA). It was intended to reduce the input of pharmaceuticals into water bodies.
In this project a structural concept for the future water supply was developed on behalf of the water utility Trinkwasserversorgung Magdeburg GmbH (TWM).
On behalf of the HSE Südhessische Energie AG, ISOE is involved in compiling an expert report on the carbon balance of carbon-offset forestry projects.
This project looks into how active drugs substances and micropollutants can be extracted via sewage plants. The part played by ISOE is to investigate how such inputs can be avoid.
In July 2010 the launch of the new BMBF initiative "Climate change and adaptive land management in Africa" took place. The goal is to build up a long-term research infrastructure in Africa via regional competence centres.
In this project, the focus is on how to improve the ‘policy impact’ of sustainability research in Germany.
The 'KlimaAlltag' project is investigating low carbon lifestyles in different social strata. The focus is on mobility, nutrition, home living and household energy consumption.
