KlimaCampus Kolloquium: Climate Informed Engineering: An Essential Pillar of Industry 4.0 Transformation

Breakthroughs in computing have led to development of new generations of Earth Systems Models providing detailed information on how our planet may locally respond to the ongoing global warming. This presents an unprecedented opportunity for engineers to make tangible contributions to climate adaptation through integration of climate information in their products and designs. This is precisely the key focus of Climate Informed Engineering (CIE) Research Initiative founded at TUHH in collaboration with MPI-M and United Nations University. The concept behind CIE is to enable engineers to build infrastructure, devices, sensors or develop new materials and processes that are informed by climate information, thus contributing to concepts like resilience and climate change adaptation. We believe CIE will be an increasingly important dimension of Engineering Science resonating with engineers and scientists with different backgrounds (1) with the details discussed in this talk.
