Erstes erfolgreiches Treffen des DAAD Thematischen Netzwerks “Modern Geodetic Space Techniques for Global Change Monitoring” an der Universität Stuttgart.
Am 19. November 2015 fand das erste Treffen des Thematischen Netzwerks mit unseren Partnern aus China, Luxemburg und München statt. Gefördert wird das internationle Projekt vom Deutschen Akademischen Austauschdienst (DAAD) für die nächsten 4 Jahre mit bis zu 1 Millionen Euro.

First successful meeting of the DAAD Thematic Network "Modern Geodetic Space Techniques for Global Change Monitoring" at University of Stuttgart.
On the 19th November 2015 the first Thematic Network Meeting with our partners from China, Luxembourg and Munich took place. The international project is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for the next 4 years with about 1 millionen Euro.


For more details:


Die Universität Stuttgart hat sich für die 2015 startende Förderung des Programms „Thematische Netzwerke“ beworben und ist einer der 28 erfogreichen von 89 Bewerbern. Das Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung finanziert den Aufbau von internationalen themenbezogenen Forschungs- und Ausbildungsnetzwerken mit ausgewählten ausländischen Partnerinstitutionen mit 250.000€ pro Jahr. 2012 ging das Programm in die erste Runde, woraus sich bereits weltweite hochrangige wissenschaftliche Netzwerke entwickelt haben.

Vor allem sollen die Thematischen Netzwerke die internationalen Profile deutscher Hoch-schulen fördern. Hierbei wird bei der internationalen Partnerwahl großen Wert auf renommierte Hochschulen gelegt. Der DAAD fördert die exzellente wissenschaftliche Vernetzung von multilateralen thematischen Netzwerken in Form von inhaltlichen Konferenzen und Work-shops, Forschungsaufenthalten und Kurz- und Langzeitaufenthalten in Partnerländern unter anderem für strategische Besprechungen und zur Netzwerkpflege. Für die nächsten vier Jah-re soll nun auch an der Universität Stuttgart ein internationales wissenschaftliches Netzwerk entstehen, welches sich durch die Kooperation und Partnerschaft erfolgreich entwickeln wird. Das Programm bietet große Flexibilität in der Umsetzung, daher können die teil-nehmenden Institutionen aus einem breit gefächerten Spektrum gezielt Förderungen wählen, die zu ihrem individuellen Thematischen Netzwerk passen. Inhaltlich wird sich das Netzwerk im Rahmen von „Modernen geodätischen Weltraumtechniken zum Monitoring der globalen Veränderung“ bewegen. Konkrete Ziele der internationalen Partnerschaft sind im Besonderen neben enger Zusammenarbeit vor allem im Bereich des Austauschs von Hochschulpersonal, Bachelor- und Masterstudierenden, der Austausch von Doktorandinnen und Doktoranden zu Forschungszwecken. Darüber hinaus wird durch das Thematische Netzwerk die Internationali-sierungsstrategie der Universität Stuttgart unterstützt, welche eine stetige Entwicklung der Qualität in Lehre und Forschung garantieren soll. Außerdem soll aus dem Projekt ein dauerhaftes Kompetenz-Zentrum zum Thema „Monitoring Globaler Veränderung an der Universität Stuttgart“ entstehen. Ferner ist das Ziel des Netzwerks auch durch die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) gefördert zu werden.

Der gelungene Auftakt des Netzwerks fand am 19. November an der Universität Stuttgart statt. Zunächst begrüßte Projektleiter Prof. Dr. Nico Sneeuw die 21 Anwesenden, worauf sich die Repräsentantinnen und Repräsentanten der Partnerinstitutionen vorstellten und kurz auf ihre inhaltlichen Schwerpunkte eingingen. Vor allem diente das erste Netzwerktreffen dem persönlichen Kennenlernen der internationalen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler. Die internationalen Partner des Netzwerks sind die Wuhan Universität, Space Geodesy (Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG), die Tongji Universität, Remote Sensing Geoinformation (Prof. Dr. Jiexian WANG, Prof. Dr. Yi LIN), die Chinese Academy of Surverying and Mapping, für Geodesy and Geodynamics (Prof. Dr. Hanjiang WEN) und die Universität Luxemburg, Climate Variability Geodynamics (Prof. Dr. Tonie van Dam). Zu den beiden chinesischen Partneruniversitäten pflegt die Universität Stuttgart bereits seit vielen Jahren ein sehr erfolgreiches Partnerverhältnis im Zuge dessen bisher diverse Austauschprogramme stattfanden. Frau Verena Lieb als Repräsentantin vom Deutschen Geodätischen Forschungsinstitut der Technischen Uni-versität München war als eine der deutschen Kooperationspartner des Netzwerks vertreten. Beteiligte Institute der Universität Stuttgart sind neben den Antragstellern des Geodätischen Instituts (Prof. Dr. Nico Sneeuw) auch das Institut für Ingenieurgeodäsie (Prof. Dr. Volker Schwieger, Li Zhang), das Institut für Photogrammatrie (Prof. Dr. Norbert Haala), das Institut für Wasser- und Umweltsystemmodellierung (Prof. Dr. András Bárdossy, Dirk Schlabing), das Institut für Navigation (Doris Becker) und das Institut für Raumfahrtsysteme (Prof. Dr. Georg Herdrich). Gemeinsam wollen die Expertinnen und Experten in den nächsten vier Jahren nicht nur ihre Netzwerkexpertise im Bereich geodätischer Technologie wie der Satellitendateianalysen, dem Monitoring und der Modellierung von Phänomenen der globalen Verände-rung zusammentragen, sondern auch durch enge Zusammenarbeit wissenschaftliche Erfolge erzielen. Beispielsweise können durch die gemeinsame und vertrauensvolle Arbeit schneller gemeinsame Forschungsanträge gestellt und Publikationen veröffentlicht werden.

Neben den Projektpartnern zählte auch Frau Helen Schomer, Vertreterin des DAAD, zu den Gästen, welche unter anderem offene Fragen zur Organisation des Netzwerks klärte. Außerdem war das Dezernat Internationales der Universität Stuttgart durch seinen Leiter, Dr. Heiko Richter, repräsentiert und somit auch die administrative Ebene miteinbezogen.

Darüber hinaus erschien, in dem im November herausgegebenen Magazin „FORSCHUNG LEBEN - Wissenschaft International“ der Universität Stuttgart, ein Artikel über das durch den DAAD entstandene Netzwerk. Besonders wurde dabei auf die gemeinsamen Projekte der internationalen Forschungsgemeinde zum Thema der klimatischen Veränderungen eingegangen.
