Technische Universität Dresden – Chair of Meteorology

The Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) is one of the 10 largest universities in Germany with about 37.000 students and over 9.000 employees, 520 professors among them. As a full-curriculum university with 14 faculties in five schools it offers a broad variety of 129 disciplines and covers a wide research spectrum

In LIFE LOCAL ADAPT the Chair of Meteorology and the European Project Center work together and form the coordinating beneficiary.

The Chair of Meteorology was founded in 1954 with an emphasis on climate research at landscape level. Today it is part of the Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences. Its research mission is “Surface- Atmosphere-Interaction”. Research and teaching are equally important aspects for about 25 staff members.
In the last ten years the scope of the Department of Meteorology was considerable enlarged, remote sensing and boundary layer modeling as well as the climate change and the adaptation to climate change became additional important research areas. Nevertheless, research and teaching remain equally important tasks of all members of the department.

The European Project Center provides advice about European programmes for research funding, training and third country co-operation, and about support from the European Structural Funds. The team of experts has far-reaching knowledge of EU funding policy and extensive experience in implementing the individual programmes and actions. In addition to consulting on funding, the key competences lie in administrative project management. The team has grown now to over 35 members of staff and is entirely financed by the third-party funding it receives.
