The faculty is involved in Research and Enterprise Network for Infrastructures
The RENI (Research and Enterprise Network for Infrastructures) project will run from 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2026 and will facilitate cooperation and knowledge transfer between research institutions and SMEs to increase innovation potential. The thematic areas covered are applied geology, namely engineering geology, hydrogeology and applied geophysics.
The lead partner of the project is the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden, the other partners of the project are Charles University, the Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz, the Technical University of Liberec and the company Jähnig GmbH Felssicherung.
The project is aimed at supporting businesses to apply science. The project will create a network of collaborating institutions to share knowledge and new insights. Workshops and colloquia will be held to transfer information. A field test site will be set up on the site of a former opencast mine near Dresden for all participating institutions to carry out practical tests or presentations of different branches of applied geology. At the same time, a web-based RENI platform will be created to initiate and support longer-term cooperation for sustainable infrastructure provision and technology transfer.
