Research presentation

Stephan Barthel

Professor, docent in Geospatial Information Science

Research subject: Environmental Science

Professor Stephan Barthel leads challenge driven research programs on green cities and on the role that civil society play in a fair climate transformation. He actively integrate scholars with different knowledge systems in co-creation to strengthen the resilience of socio-ecological functions in the outdoor environment in urban landscapes during a transformation towards a fossil-free future. Furthermore he has the mission to translate academic research into trans-disciplinary collaborations and co-creation projects with actors outside academia.
