Objectives of the workshop series

  • To establish contact with key stakeholders and learn their concerns regarding LIRLAP work packages
  • (WPs) and issues beyond; 
  • To learn potential case study sites for both current scoping and the consequent four-year R&D phase;  
  • To initiate start-up short training program; 
  • To outreach other ASEAN countries engaged in risk governance and urban management via subcontracting and support letters. 
  • To create a basis for knowledge validation and screening of implementable strategies(technically and financially) regarding all four WPs during next workshop series in October 2020. 

Besides output derived from each individual WP1 to 4, the following outcomes were identified: 

  • Synchronized results were used for the full proposal writing of the subsequently planned four-year R&D phase (2021-2024) in collaboration with the two cooperation above-mentioned partners from Germany, UP SURP (as local hub) and further partners in ASEAN (outreaching partners), representing the governmental sphere, the private sector and the civil society.

LIRLAP four WPs and targeted tasks for this workshop series (WP1-4): 

  • WP1: Risk Trends - identification of key drivers of urbanization;

  • WP3: Resilient Retreat - Identification of actor network; and 
  • WP4: Capacity Nuilding and Dissemination - training programme and Joint PhD programme. 

Around 50 participants came from relevant national, regional and local government agencies, universities and research institutions experts (from the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and Germany), civil society, international organizations (approx. 50 people). 

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Campus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Campus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Campus to South Campus by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Campus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund University has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
