Our  research focuses on thermal and hygric environmental impacts and on typical receptors in particular of urban space.

In the Research Area "Environmental Risks in Urban and Regional Development" our aim is to

  • Vulnerability of buildings, cities and regions [more]
  • Design and test spatial models for the integrated simulation of risks and the effects of preventive measures [more]
