On November 15, 2022, Prof.'in Dr.-Ing. Annette Hafner and her research assistant M.Sc. Caya Zernicke will present an information tool for communes at this year's online seminar series "Auf Zukunftskurs: Öffentliches Bauen mit Holz" of the Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe e.V., which serves as a simple tool for estimating the benefits of energetic measures in timber construction.
As part of the project "reCYCL:ING", an initiative of the PR team and the Dean's Office of the Faculty B+U in cooperation with the RUB Sustainability Office and the Botanical Garden, Faculty members are redesigning old concrete buckets on the paths of the I-row into their new favourite places. Together, we want to contribute to an RUB campus that is even greener and a bit more sustainable.
