The Fraunhofer-Allianz engineering develops innovative solutions of tomorrow. Holzkirchen, April 25, 2012. Almost 60 percent of humanity in cities will live up to 2030. However, cities need energy and raw materials, waste and pollutants they produce, their transport systems are overloaded. To read more click here: SurveyGizmo. All this causes that they already face major challenges in urban planning, construction, transport, security, energy and climate protection. To develop sustainable urban technologies and systems, Fraunhofer researchers have now in the innovation network morning city “joined together. As a central point of contact for all issues around the subject of construction the Fraunhofer-Allianz building in occupies a crucial role.
The objective morning city “initiative is the development and design of sustainable, liveable and sustainable cities of the future. In implementing this vision, different institutions work together within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The core themes of the initiative are doing energy, building, production and logistics, Mobility and transport, information and communications, urban processes and organization, as well as security and protection. In interdisciplinary projects, the Fraunhofer researchers develop models for action today for a comprehensive technology management in cities of the future. In the Fraunhofer-Allianz building, therefore 17 Fraunhofer institutes combined their competencies about building. Within the”city of tomorrow initiative they bring above all their know-how in the settlement and building planning, researching innovative materials and building materials, as well as in the development of future-oriented building techniques.The Fraunhofer-Allianz building deals with the systematic consideration of buildings by the material, component, room and building up to the full settlement. Her research focuses among other things on the system integration, sustainability and resource conservation, as well as on problems of product, system and process optimization. Stuck in all these areas need for improvement as well as opportunities for the development of new Technologies and systematic approaches for sustainable and appropriate buildings,”explains Andreas Kaufmann, Director of the Fraunhofer alliance building. Cities grow faster and faster it is all the more important that their development is specifically planned and accompanied.
