Research Project Leipziger BlauGrün Phase I

The Leipzig BlueGreen research project focuses on the development of resource-efficient urban districts. In cooperation with the city of Leipzig, the investor, business enterprises and other scientific institutions, the UFZ is developing a concept for climate-adapted water and energy management using the Leipzig 416 neighbourhood as an example. The city of Leipzig is thus one of the model municipalities funded in the Resource Efficient Urban Neighbourhoods - RES:Z initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. You can find out more about our project goals and partners here.

In this short video film (03:40 min), Roland Müller (UFZ), Heinrich Neu (Leipzig City Planning Office) and Ludger Wälken (Leipzig 416 Management GmbH) explain the goals of the LeipzigerBlauGrün project and the challenges involved in developing climate-adapted, resource-efficient blue-green infrastructures for an urban quarter.

Project duration: 01.10.2019 - 30.09.2022 / FKZ: 033W110A-K
