Background information about PLUS

 

Project Description in German language

Short Introduction to PLUS (English, pdf)

The Leibniz University of Hanover (LUH) and the Beijing-based Tsinghua University founded the research platform PLUS, which stands for “Platform for United Water Science and Technology Innovations”. PLUS refers to the topic of “environmental and water technologies”. In cooperation with Tsinghua University, two highly dynamic locations are planned: 1) the Tsinghua Campus in Beijing, and 2) the Shenzhen International Campus of Tsinghua University. Four core content features of PLUS are:

  1. Enhancing the collaborative research on: microplastics, wastewater treatment & reuse, micropollutants, sludge management, phosphorous/energy recovery, sponge cities and more.
  2. Establishing a talent-oriented academic exchange.
  3. PLUS-UP: incubator for start-ups for environmental technologies and services.
  4. Profile of the LUH, the provincial capital-region of Hanover and deepening the city partnership with Shenzhen.
PLUS stands for mutually excellent practiced science. PLUS strengthen s the German-Chinese network and promotes the networking of stakeholders from sciences, business and politics in particular. PLUS institutionalizes cooperation with Tsinghua und provides the opportunity to further develop the research cooperation on innovative water and environmental technologies as a common “research mark”.

    

汉诺威莱布尼兹大学(简称汉诺威大学)和坐落于北京的清华大学联手打造了PLUS这一科研合作平台——中德联合水科技创新平台。此平台着眼于“环境和水科技”这一话题。这次与清华大学的合作,我们计划在两个地点创建我们的平台:1)清华大学,即北京;2)清华大学深圳研究院,即深圳。本项目主要有以下四个目标:

  1. 在以下几个领域,加强双方的合作:微塑料、污水处理&再利用、微污染、污泥处理、磷/能量的恢复、海绵城市和其他相关问题;
  2. 建立以人才为导向的学术交流;
  3. 升级PLUS:鼓励环境技术类和服务类创业;
  4. 提升汉诺威大学以及汉诺威该城市在中国的知名度,加强汉诺威与深圳的城际合作关系。
PLUS代表的是,相互学习并应用优秀的科学技术。其不仅能够加强中德现存的关系,其也能大大加强科技领域、商业领域和政治领域相关参与人员之间的联系。在创新水和环境技术合作研究方面,PLUS在与清华大学的合作基础之上,提供了一个将其发展成为一个共有“研究商标”的可能性。
