Evolving Regions

  • Projects

The project Evolving Regions, funded by the EU and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), aims to support climate adaptation in rural areas for and with partners from 7 regions in NRW and one region in the Netherlands. The IRPUD is responsible for conducting climate impact analyses serving as an information and decision-making basis during the roadmap process.

Despite the corona pandemic, the project remains active and in close collaboration with the project partners. Currently, the project is realising an online format of the democycle for the two regions Steinfurt. For this purpose, the developed triad of climate impact analyses (see figure) was filled with initial content like compact factsheets for NRW and first result of the climate impact analyses.

The initial result of the climate impact analyses for the climate signals heat, drought, heavy rainfall and river flooding were presented and discussed among all project partners during the democycle. In addition to the start of the democycle an online jour fix for all participating partners took place, mainly focussing on the methodology and procedure of the climate impact analyses.

Additionally, online expert workshops were held on 22nd and 24th of June 2020 in order to discuss a transferable approach for climate impact analyses with the corresponding data and indicators for NRW. To further promote the project in public, first activities are now taking place on Twitter:

Location & approach

The TU Dort­mund campus is located near the Dort­mund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dort­mund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. Coming from the A45, you can turn onto Stockumer Straße via Universitätsstraße. This in turn is connected to Baroper Straße, along which Campus South extends. If you take the exit of the A-40, the route via Emil-Figge Straße, Marie-Curie Allee to Baroper Straße makes sense. If you turn from Baroper Straße into August-Schmidt Straße, you have the possibility to reach the parking lot directly behind the GB III.

The South Campus is connected via Stockumerstraße by bus lines 440 and 449, which run every 10 minutes. Campus South can be reached on foot from the Am Gardenkamp stop, and the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station is also located near the Eichlinghofen stop. The bus lines connect to the U42 light rail line at the Barop Parkhaus stop, which provides connections to the Dort­mund-Hombruch district and Dort­mund downtown. 

From Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen, the South Campus is connected to the H-Bahn network via the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station. Line 1 runs here every 10 minutes, and the South Campus is served by the Campus Süd stop. 
A connection to Campus North is also provided via the H-Bahn. Line 2 shuttles between Campus North and Campus South every 5 minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.

The facilities of TU Dort­mund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
