Land use and water

Besides the energy and material resources, the use of land and water for built-environment-related activities is often underrepresented in scientific as well as public debate. This field will promote the appropriate consideration of these resources in terms of a discussion paper describing the current status and the challenges ahead. This activity offers synergies with the Climate-KIC flagship project called Smart Sustainable Districts (SSD), the research cooperation with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration on the “ferry-free road, E39” as well as a number of other projects within different departments at Chalmers.
