Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dieter D. Genske

Current Activity
After his PhD, Dr. Genske started working on engineering and einvironmental problems, first as a Humboldt Research Fellow in Kyoto, Japan, then as a project manager at Deutsche Montan Technologie DMT, where he became involved in major urban remediation projects, including the International Building Exhibition IBA Emscher Park and the new Parliament Quarter in Berlin. During this time he also carried out the visualisation project Graf Moltke (Ruhr District), in close co-operation with the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. Dieter D. Genske taught at a number of universities including the TU Delft, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne EPFL, and the ETH Zurich. In addition, he has conducted a number of development projects in lon-income countries, especially in Africa and Eastern Europe. Universities in Germany, Switzerland, South Africa and Japan invited him as guest professor. Since 2000, Dieter Genske is focussing on associating space resources with renewable energies . In this context, he has conducted research and development projects on the introduction of renewable energies and the reduction of greenhouse gases for the Bundesland thuringia, the German Government, the European Uniion (EFRE, INTERREG), the International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg, the Canton of Basel-City (2000-Watt-Society), the Principality of Liechtenstein and the City of Villach (Austria). At the moment he is involved in the International Building Exhibition IBA Thuringia and the Bodensee/Lake Constance-Alpine Rhine Valley Energy- and Climate Region BAER. Dr. Genske iholds a professorial appointment at Nordhausen UNiversity of Applied Sciences and teaches as guest professor at the University of Liechtenstein
