The Technical University in Ilmenau focuses on the topic of sustainability. Throughout the year, research projects are to be presented that strive for innovative and resource-saving solutions in a wide variety of scientific areas, as the university announced on Monday.

New technologies will be presented that record and regulate the state of the flora and fauna in the ecosystems, but also new methods for an effective working environment, in digitization or in communication on the energy transition. According to the information, researchers at the TU Ilmenau are working on processes for the production of green hydrogen, making power grids fit for the requirements of the energy transition and further developing electromobility.

The theme year “Sustainability” will be opened on Wednesday with a lecture by media researcher Jens Wolling, it said.
