Our aim is the preservation of a world worth living in. To this end, we generate knowledge and research new technologies for more resilience and sustainability—for the benefit of the climate, the coasts and the people.
Our path from idea to innovation leads through experimental studies, modeling and artificial intelligence. In this way, we build an interdisciplinary bridge from the basic scientific understanding of elementary processes to scenarios and practical applications.
As an active member of international research networks and the Helmholtz Association, we provide support toward shaping a sustainable future through the transfer of our expertise to political, economic and societal institutions.
