Pan-European competition across 23 countries: DIFA-AWARD 2004 to recognise vibrant urban developments

02.10.2003


First international competition focusing on urban quarters for towns and cities with 100,000 inhabitants or more / Deadline for entries 31 December 2003

Is the "urban quarter" a typically European response to the need to modernise, enhance and regenerate run-down, depopulated urban districts? It would certainly appear so: from Helsinki to Berlin and Madrid, town planners in medium-sized towns and major cities are increasingly focusing on the integrative effect of the quarter, making this type of project a symbol of sustainable urban development. The DIFA-AWARD 2004 is the first town planning competition to recognise the importance of the quarter to European urban development. Having been held twice before in Germany only, the DIFA-AWARD will now explore the economic and social potential of quarter development in 23 European countries. Towns across Europe with 100,000 inhabitants or more have until 31 December 2003 to submit successfully realised projects for consideration. The total amount of prize money for the coveted award is 30,000 euros.

The DIFA-AWARD 2004 aims to find projects that boost the vitality of built inner-city quarters, and prizes will be awarded accordingly. The evaluation process will pay particular attention to whether a tangible increase in vitality has been achieved by creating publicly accessible places such as squares, parks and arcades, and through effective quarter management. The latter is understood to include involving both the visiting public and local residents. Entries will undergo a two-stage selection process at the hands of an interdisciplinary jury of experts including architects Professor Albert Speer and Helmut Jahn, as well as Peter Rees, City Planning Officer for the Corporation of London. The awards ceremony will take place in October 2004 at EXPO REAL, Munich’s commercial property show. The DIFA-AWARD is held on a bi-annual basis by Hamburg-based DIFA Deutsche Immobilien Fonds AG.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
