VISITING PROFESSORSHIP

The Cluster has established and funded a new visiting professorship programme aimed at attracting prominent international scientists in the field of IntCDC for a period of 1 to 3 months.

The visiting professorship programme covers IntCDC-related topics to ensure immediate operability.

Female researchers are specifically encouraged to apply.

For further information or in case of questions, please contact the Cluster’s Collaboration’s Manager.

INDUSTRY SECONDMENTS

The Cluster’s Research Programme facilitates our industrial collaboration and exchange. We offer industry secondments with partners of the Cluster's Industry Consortium (IC) as part of the Cluster’s knowledge transfer measures. We enabling IntCDC’s researchers to spend up to three months in the field with IC companies as part of the support measures for early career researchers.

Similarly, the Cluster will host practitioners from the IC companies for academic internships in its labs at the university.

We provides the funding and scholarships for:

The International Research Network for Advancing Architecture, Engineering and Construction AdvanceAEC  brings together researchers who strive to advance architecture, engineering and construction through digital technologies and an interdisciplinary approach. We aim to address the multifaceted ecological, economic and socio-cultural challenges the build environment is facing. The network provides a platform to share expertise, to foster exchange, and to build an international research community across architecture, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, robotics and social science.

 

TOPICS
  • Architecture, Engineering and Construction
  • Interdisciplinary Research 
  • Seamless Digital Technologies
  • Resource efficient and future-proof construction
  • Productivity and automation

 

The main objective of the network is to foster an intensive exchange on the level of the participating research centers and the individual researchers. The common website www.advanceaec.net serves as collaborative platform.

Joint activities such as colloquia, symposia and other events nurture the collaboration of the research centers. A vital role for networking is taken by the members’ data base which additionally facilitates direct exchange and scientific collaboration of the individual researchers.

NETWORK PARTNERS

EXC 2120 – IntCDC
Cluster of Excellence 2120 – Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture, University of Stuttgart

Director: Prof. Dipl AA (Hons) Achim Menges
Deputy Director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jan Knippers

The EXC 2120 aims to harness the full potential of digital technologies in order to rethink design, fabrication and construction through a novel interdisciplinary methodology. A systematic, fundamental and highly integrative computational approach lays the methodological foundations for a comprehensive modernization of the building sector, thus enabling game-changing innovations.

SFB 1244 
Collaborative Research Centre – Adaptive skins and structures for the built environment of tomorrow, University of Stuttgart

Director: o. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E.h. Dr. h.c. Werner Sobek
Deputy Director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Dr. h.c. Oliver Sawodny

The aim of the CRC 1244 is to find answers to the urgent ecological and social questions of our time for the construction industry. The integration of adaptive elements into load-bearing structures, building skins and interior design is considered as an important approach. The CRC 1244 explores the basics, potentials and implications of this approach.

SFB/TRR277
Collaborative Research Centre – Additive Manufacturing in Construction, TU Braunschweig/TU München
 
Director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Harald Kloft (TU Braunschweig)
Deputy Director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Prof. h.c. Christoph Gehlen (TU Munich)

The SFB/Transregio TRR 277 aims to examine Additive Manufacturing (AM) as a novel digital manufacturing technology for the construction industry in an interdisciplinary, cross-location research project. Automated additive material application enables the construction of buildings with a high degree of design freedom and a resource-efficient use of materials.

SFB/TRR 280
Konstruktionsstrategien für materialminimierte Carbonbetonstrukturen – Grundlagen für eine neue Art zu bauen, TU Dresden/RWTH Aachen

Director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E.h. Manfred Curbach (TU Dresden)
Deputy Director: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Josef Hegger (RWTH Aachen University)

The aim of the SFB/TRR 280 is to create the foundations for the building of the future: completely new concepts for the design, modelling, construction, manufacture and use of sustainable resource-efficient building elements made of mineral building materials and reinforced with carbon fibres.

SPP 2187
