institut für Bautechnik und Regionalentwicklung e.V.

In the first quarter of 2022 the Institut für Bautechnik und Regionalentwicklung e.V. (Institute for construction technique and regional development, registered association) was founded as non-profit corporate from a network of enterprises, scientists, planners and performers of different trades. The impulse for the foundation of the society resulted from the actual development in the field of energy and the world climate report.

The engaged members of the institute are working in research institutes of the universities as well as of private economy, they are busy in building enterprises, machine engineering industry, they are leading craft-man’s establishments or working in consulting and advanced training institutions.They dispose of experience with respect to translation and realization of projects in European standard and have factual knowledge in the fields of construction and building equipment, material research and development, mechanical engineering and automation, regenerative energy and ecological systems of agricultural utilization, regional planning and development as well as the initiation and creation of democratic participation processes.

By applied research with respect  to constructionally relevant, ecologically sustainable materials and manufacturing techniques and the organization of processes for conveyance of knowledge and social as well as ecological connections to producers, appliers and users we contribute to the mobilization of potentials of structurally weak regions and their sustainable development.

To support our work critically and technically and to guarantee the interdisciplinarity required with respect to the targets of sustainability we have appointed a scientific advisory board, the members of which assist the institute honorarily.
