International Partnerships for Sustainable Innovations

With the "CLIENT II - International Partnerships for Sustainable Innovations" funding initiative, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is promoting demand-oriented research collaborations with selected emerging and developing countries. The international joint projects are developing innovative and sustainable climate, energy, environmental and resource solutions which will help to address concrete challenges in the partner countries. With a total of up to 100 million euros, the development of technologies, products, services and system solutions is promoted in seven subject areas. These are then inspected on-site in practical tests. The cooperation between German and international partners from the academic and professional worlds enables solutions that are adapted to local conditions, making them marketable. This approach strengthens the competitive position of Germany and the participating partner countries. Globally, CLIENT II is making a direct contribution to the mitigation of environmental degradation, the restoration of already degraded environmental processes and the sustainable management of natural resources.

The map of the world shows all projects and their locations. You can zoom in to individual regions and countries and get more information about each project with a click of the mouse. The list view provides a view of all projects with further filtering and sorting options.

SIGN2 Schema
Within the framework of the research activities of SIGN and SIGN2, a special issue was published in the journal "Science of the total Environment" with the title "Taihu (China): Water Quality and Processes - From the Source to the Tap".
In the BestBioPLA project, researchers at the Fraunhofer IFAM are developing new polymers for natural fibre reinforced composites. The first samples are now ready for testing for biodegradability.
KASHEMP Junghanf
The project's approach and methods for optimising the cultivation and processing of textile hemp as an alternative to cotton in Kazakhstan are proving to be economically viable and of long-term interest to local actors. This is clear from the significant expansion of the area under cultivation, processing capacities and the product range, as well as the increasing numbers of regional players entering into the business of producing hemp fibres locally.
Onlinetreffen ViWaT
In times of social distancing, important meetings need to transition to an online format and fieldwork may need to be delayed. An international project like ViWaT is well equipped to handle the change from physical to digital meetings, as evidenced by the numerous successful conferences and workshops held in the past months.
