– Cross-cutting scientific project –
Networking, communication and transfer

In the context of a funding program to support research projects

The funding program, as part of the flagship initiative “Zukunftsstadt” (“future city”) addresses the development and implementation of innovative concepts for greater resource efficiency in urban districts. The cross-cutting project supports the participating groups and alliances in the implementation and transfer of sustainable solutions into municipal practice.

Aims and methods
One objective of ReQ+ is to network the content of the projects involved, e.g. by organizing joint events. In addition, cross-cutting topics of overarching interest are prepared for the groups and alliances in workshops and discussion rounds. A further objective is establishing transparency beyond the project and networking with other relevant stakeholders through targeted public relations work.

Expected results and transfer
The results of the groups and alliances will be compiled and evaluated, and their contribution to the German sustainability strategy will be presented. The transfer to various stakeholder groups from politics, business, science and municipalities takes place through regional offers and also via a practical handbook and a freely accessible training module.
