- Date: 2021-01-20
The Baden-Württemberg Competence Center for Environmental Informatics (German: KUI, “Kompetenzzentrum Umweltinformatik”) was launched at the end of December 2020. The KUI is located at the Baden-Württemberg State Institute for the Environment, Survey and Nature Conservation (German: LUBW Landesanstalt für Umwelt Baden-Württemberg) and is intended to make an important contribution to digital and sustainable environmental administration.
Since 2013, citizens have been able to access location-specific information on environmental quality with the app “Meine Umwelt”. The working group Web-based Information Systems (WebIS) within the research area IT Methods and Components for Smart Infrastructures (IT4SI) department has been a key research partner in the design and development of this and several other IT projects in cooperation with the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector Baden-Württemberg as well as the LUBW and other IT partners.
