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.

CLIENT II at a glance

Aufbau einer automatischen Wetterstation
In regular interviews published on the EnerSHelF website, project partners and researchers are giving insight into their work within the project.
Test der Membran-Pilotanlage in Deutschland
Within the scope of SIGN2, membrane modules from Inge were coated with the innovative layer-by-layer technology from Surflay. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the further developed membranes could not be installed as planned at the location of the pilot plant at the waterworks in Wujiang (China), which had previously been sampled several times. Nonetheless, in order to test the new membranes on a pilot scale, an alternative site in Germany was selected.
Dr. Emmanuel Ramde und das Team am Pilotstandort in Kumasi
A team of German and Ghanaian researchers and technicians installed equipment for collecting meteorological data at the health facilities in Kumasi, Akwatia and Kologo.
Final papers on water balance models and rainwater management plans in Ghana. Since the start of the BMBF-funded joint project RAIN, three students have already been able to complete their final theses within this project.
Inform@Risk Bohrung
In October, the project team began drilling to collect soil samples and install soil sensors for the early warning aystem for slope movements in informal settlements in the steep mountain slopes of Medellín.
