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 scientists of the demons junior research group examined links between demographic developments, needs and supply systems.
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.
Pharmas analyses ecological and human health risks of pharmaceuticals in the environment. Thirteen institutions from six countries exemplarily examine anticancer drugs and antibiotics.
The micle project examines whether climate-related changes to the environment are the trigger for migratory movement by linking social with scientific data.
This project examines which conditions need to be met to ensure success of the Trialogue-format which was developed at the HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA School of Governance.
What impact the ecological restoration of waterways has on people is a subject that has rarely been studied till now. It stands to reason that renaturalized waterways are more attractive for many social groups – such as local residents or people taking a walk – than a body of water that has been channeled.
The team of the German-Iranian IWRM project in Isfahan is developing a concept for integrated water resource management (IWRM) in the region around the Zayandeh river.
Within the framework of the IndUK project, the research team is deepening scientific insights from four Social-ecological Research (SÖF) research projects of the BMBF-funding program on "Social dimensions of climate protection and climate change". In addition to the ISOE – Institute for Social-Ecological Research, which was responsible for managing the project ‘KlimaAlltag’, scientists from the SÖF projects EMIGMA, SPREAD and REBOUND are involved.
On behalf of the public utility HAMBURG WASSER, the project team determined how much water the city of Hamburg will need during the coming 30 years.
Within the EiMap project, a “folder for new homeowners” is developed as a communication instrument, as well as a synchronised dialogic communication campaign and tested in the field.
When it comes to the use of veterinary and human pharmaceuticals there is an unwanted side effect: the pharmaceutical substance is not entirely degraded but excreted and thus emitted into the environment via the wastewater.
In this project, the team analyses the risks of pharmaceutical and chemical inputs into wastewater from retirement homes, nursing homes and hospices, and develops strategies for action.
ISOE – Institute for Social-Ecological Research evaluates water partnerships between the private sector, civil society and the public sector in various countries. The project team first develops an evaluation concept and then performs a baseline study. IWaSP is a transnational program of the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) that aims to establish and support water partnerships.
The project aims to implement one of the recommendations from the handbook “Communications strategies to raise environmental awareness regarding drug usage” by educating physicians and raising their awareness for the topic.
In the empirical research project scientists of the ISOE are investigating the connection between the use of smartphones and attitudes towards mobility.
The project is studying how drug residue in the water cycle might be minimised with the help of technical and communications measures.
