Dresden University of Technology / Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES)
Dresden University of Technology is one of Germany’s eleven universities of excellence. One of its five research profiles is „Energy, Mobility and Environment.“ About 25 percent of the approximately 500 university professors are involved in this sector which encompasses the scientific disciplines of all faculties. They cover a wide range of topics revolving around energy, mobility, water, and the environment.
In cooperation with Dresden University of Technology, the United Nations University (UNU) officially inaugurated the Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES) in Dresden at the end of 2012. The institute focuses on strategies for the sustainable use of resources at an international level. UNU-FLORES in Dresden is one of three German campuses of the United Nations University (UNU). The doctoral degree program in „Integrated Management of Water, Soil, and Waste,“ which was initiated in 2014 together with Dresden University of Technology, has been coordinated here since then.
