IMPULS - Impulses for a sustainable, inter-municipally coordinated services of general interest in the Harz planning region

Project duration: 08/2021 to 07/2024

IMPULS aims at the planning and management of services of general interest, in particular with regard to upscale and high-quality specialized goods and services in the economic, social, cultural and scientific fields, by means of a regional concept for the Harz planning region that spans municipalities and counties. The re­le­vant facilities are to be provided for the population in a long-term and sustainable manner, the cores or anchor points in the Harz region are to be strengthened, and a contribution is to be made to equivalent living conditions in the entire state, whereby environmental concerns are also to be strengthened as a component of the equivalence concept. In this way, IMPULS strives for a region-specific de­sign of the Zentrale-Orte-Kon­zept by providing the desired cooperation model with a strategic bracket via a regional development concept. A possible way of formalization is shown with the development of contractual models. In perspective, the model is to be given binding spatial planning status by the state planning authorities in the form of a functionally divided Oberzentrum.

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”.
