FloodCitiSense aims at co-creating an urban pluvial flood early warning service for, but also with citizens and city authorities. This service will reduce the vulnerability of cities and citizens to pluvial floods, which cause serious damage to the urban environment. Citizens are actively involved in the monitoring of rainfall and flooding, making use of low-cost sensors and web-based technologies. FloodCitiSense is funded within the Urban Europe – ENSUF programme.
International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3) aims at sustainable innovations and shapes the transformation of the chemical products towards sustainability and circular economy. In its workstream “Plastics in Sustainable Building & Living” ISC3 is conducting a multi-stakeholder dialogue looking for innovative fields and new business models in the construction sector which are based on sound ecological, social and economic principals.
iSCAPE is a three-year research and innovation project funded under the European Union’s H2020 programme. The iSCAPE project aims to develop an integrated strategy for air pollution control in European cities that is grounded on evidence-based analysis. To reduce urban air pollution and the negative impacts of climate change iSCAPE leverages sustainable passive control systems, behaviour change initiatives and the living lab approach.
Without a durable infrastructure, many of the UN sustainability goals cannot be achieved. The KIT HUB promotes this through the cooperative development of innovative products and services and their transfer into practice. Preventive measures extend the technical service life and reduce ecological and economic burdens. The KIT HUB also provides a communication platform for decision-makers and social groups and provides advice for all stakeholders. Training courses and further education support the knowledge transfer.
