Institute for Tecnology and Resources Management in the Tropics and Subtropics
The Institute for Technology and Resources Management (ITT) is an education and research institute at the Technische Hochschule Köln, University of Applied Sciences. It conducts educational and capacity development programs with partners around the world with ongoing projects in Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Jordan, Egypt, Vietnam and Indonesia. Current research projects set focus on flood and drought risk management, water use efficiency, land use and climate change interactions, river basin assessment, hydrological modelling and precision agriculture. ITT offers consulting studies and capacity building measures focusing on: river basin assessment, hydrological modeling, design of monitoring and control systems, development of spatial information to support irrigation management, training courses related to IWRM, discharge measurements, hydrometry, applications of GIS and remote sensing in irrigation management.
Friedrich Schiller University Jena
The Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, founded in 1558, with its 21,000 students distributed over ten different faculties leaves its mark on the image of the town. Special programmes support students from abroad. When it comes to teaching, Jena University combines tradition and innovation: Apart from medicine, physics, psychology, business studies and economics, or sports, bio and social sciences - all of which are highly ranked - the so-called "smaller subjects", like for instance caucasiology, Romanian or Indo-Germanic studies, are sustained. The wide range of opportunities for studying at Thuringia's only classical university shapes its appearance as well as its attitude: to act without limits - interdisciplinarily and internationally.
Technische Universität München
Technische Universität München (TUM) is one of Europe’s top universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young scientists. The university also forges strong links with companies and scientific institutions across the world. TUM was one of the first universities in Germany to be named a University of Excellence. Moreover, TUM regularly ranks among the best European universities in international rankings.
UNESCO - International Hydrological Programme
Germany has set up an interdisciplinary national committee, contributing both to UNESCO’s IHP and to the Hydrology and Water Resources Programme (HWRP) of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO). The IHP/HWRP National Committee acts as a national forum for the hydrological sciences in Germany, interlinking the fresh water programmes of the UN with national research projects and operational hydrological services. The IHP/HWRP National Committee is a forum for the exchange of information, creating synergies at the interface between the national and international scales. The IHP/HWRP National Committee is supported in its work by a permanent secretariat located at the Federal Institute of Hydrology in Koblenz.
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
KIT bundles the missions of both precursory institutions: A university of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg with teaching and research tasks and a large-scale research institution of the Helmholtz Association conducting program-oriented provident research on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. Within these missions, KIT is operating along the three strategic fields of action of research, teaching, and innovation.
Located in the midst of the dynamic, hospitable metropolitan area of the Ruhr, in the heart of Europe, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) with its 20 faculties, RUB’s disciplinary institutional units, is home to 5,600 employees and over 41,000 students from 130 countries. All the great scientific disciplines are united on one compact campus. The excellence programmes have made themselves an international name: The Research School is an international college for structured doctoral research in the life sciences, natural sciences, engineering, the humanities and social sciences. Interfaculty and interdisciplinary Research Departments, which are mutually, nationally and internationally networked, sharpen the profile of the RUB. Added to this is an unsurpassed programme for the promotion of Early Career Researchers, and an excellent infrastructure.
