Applied Geography and Environmental Planning

The Applied Geography and Environmental Planning Research Group (formerly Regional Sciences Working Group) has been working actively since 1st October 2005. The main working and research areas are:

  • Organisation of spatial control, regional mission statements
  • Spatial planning and management
  • Area protection and rural development
  • sustainable Tourism
  • Renewable energies
  • Ecological planning and development
  • Spatial information and presentation
  • GIS

The research group is orientated on the regional level (especially north-west Germany) just as well as on the international (e. g. Great Britain, Scandinavia). The Group is member of ZENARiO, a centre for sustainable spatial development in Oldenburg, and was involved in its' founding. 

Trilateral Research Seminar

Together with colleagues from the Faculty for spatial science of the University Groningen ans the Institue for Geography of the University Bremen the Research Group organises the yearly "Trilateral Research Seminar" for students of the spatial scientific disciplines. The seminar adresses an approach to a sustainable spatial development in the cross-border North Sea coast area. 

Jean Monnet-Chair

As part of the program "Lifelong Learning" of the European Union Prof. Dr. Ingo Mose with the Research Group of Applied Geography and Environmental Planning has been awarded with a Jean Monnet Chair for "Europeanization and Sustainable Spatial Development". The title became effective in the beginning of September 2012 and was awarded for a period of three years. Connected with the award is also a financial aid used to support projects in teaching and research, which address various issues regarding the European dimensions of spatial development.

Important notice

Except for the ResearchGroup Applied Geography And Environmental Planning there is no specific field of geography at the University Oldenburg. It has been terminated several years ago, just as the course of study geography. For students who are interested in this specific field there is the opportunity to participate in the corresponding lectures of the Institute for Geography at the University Bremen.
