Centre of Environmental Research, a member of Dresden Flood Research Center (UFZ): Partner 44


Centre of Environmental Research, a member of Dresden Flood Research CenterThe UFZ (Centre for Environmental Research) is one of the founder members of the Dresden Flood Research Center (D-FRC). It was established in 1991 as the first and only establishment in the Helmholtz Community of German Research Centres (HGF) to be exclusively devoted to interdisciplinary environmental research. It currently employs around 650 staff in total. UFZ research combines fundamental and applied research. Fundamental research is organised in disciplinary departments. Among others, in the twelve departments many water-related researchers work on Inland Water Research, Hydrogeology, Applied Landscape Ecology, Community Ecology, Ecological Modelling, Chemical Ecotoxicology and also on River Basin Management from a socio-economic and legal perspective. Applied research is organised in integrated projects through interdisciplinary departments. With regard to water and flood research the Department of Riverine and Lacustrine Landscapes co-ordinates problem-oriented research activities. This applied research focuses both on integrated river basin management using the River Saale as an example and on remediation and restoration of opencast mining lakes in the coalfields of central Germany and Lusatia. The long-term goal is the development of integrated approaches for the complex ecological and economic assessment of strategies to achieve a sustainable development of riverine and lacustrine landscapes in terms of flood risk management, protection of natural resources, and a sustainable use of water resources in society as a whole.
