Ludwig-Franzius-Institute for Hydraulic, Estuarine and Coastal Engineering
The Ludwig-Franzius Institute at the Leibniz University of Hanover is a nationally and internationally well-known partner for scientific problems in the fields of coastal protection, flood control and risk management, environmental impacts of water engineering, tidal influences and offshore engineering. Its focus lies in interdisciplinary international cooperation in the fields of risk and vulnerability research, including technical cooperation in developing countries. Recently, the Institute's competence has been extended to include marine technologies such as e.g. wind energy.
