Visiting IntCDC Institutes networking program (ViNe)


The visiting intcdc networking program (ViNe) is designed to promote mutual acquaintance, interdisciplinary exchange, and cross-disciplinary understanding among researchers in the field of architecture, engineering, and construction. It is aimed at early career researchers of the Cluster of Excellence, raising awareness of the differences between disciplines, with their specific research questions, ways of thinking and technical terminologies, providing insights into working methods and promoting networking among researchers from different academic backgrounds.

On 25 September 2023, we had the opportunity to: Visit the Institute of Engineering Geodesy (IIGS)


First Prof. Volker Schwieger (PI and member of EC-Commission) gave a talk on “Measuring and Processing in different scales and with different accuracy levels”, where he introduced his institute, their research foci and exemplary talked about static and kinematic, point-wise and areal measurements with Laser Scanner, Laser Tracker, Robotic Total Stations etc.

The lecture was followed by a guided tour of the institute and laboratories.

Divided into two groups, the visitors learned and practiced

  1. static and kinematic industrial metrology,
  2. kinematic measurements and control with Total Station and
  3. different laser scanners for areal data acquisition.


Many thanks to Volker Schwieger and his team, namely Gabriel Kerekes, Lyudmila Gorokhova, Sahar Abolhasani and Ronja Miehling. Their introduction and practical demonstration of the equipment and the opportunity to discuss and explore the possibilities, as well as the snacks provided, made this event a valuable experience with deep insights, networking opportunities and points of reference for the participants’ own work.
