Leibniz Institute of Ecological and Regional Development (IOER) : Partner 4

Leibniz Institute of Ecological and Regional DevelopmentThe Leibniz Institute of Ecological and Regional Development (IOER) has been founded in 1992 upon the recommendation of the Scientific Council of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its constitutive task is to scientifically address basic issues of an environmental-oriented spatial development in a national, European and international context. Thereto requirements for a sustainable regional, landscape and urban development as well as development of housing are investigated. The research deals with currents
situations, perspectives for further development and methods, strategies and instruments for an environmental-friendly governance. This also includes the formulation of basic principles for planning and policy.
The institute is focussing the water related research as one core area to provide comprehensive approaches for flood risk management and river basin management. This covers especially the interfaces between natural, social and planning science and leads to innovative integrated and governance-oriented approaches. Against this background the institute is one of the founder members of the Dresden Flood Research Center (D-FRC).

The Leibniz Institute of Ecological and Regional Development (IOER) is jointly funded by the Federal Republic of Germany and the Federal State of Saxony. It is a member of the Science Association Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz e. V. and as a registered society (e. V.) exclusively and directly pursues aims for the common good. As the largest German spatial science institute it currently employs about 100 staff.
