The overall objective of ZUKUR was to reduce socio-ecological inequalities and to increase climate resilience in regions, its cities and its neighborhoods. The applied approach should be transferable to other urban-regional contexts.
A key approach was to identify and reduce barriers between long-term urban development policy goals for adaptation to ecological, social and economic challenges and the existing spatial, urban development and institutional structures in the Ruhr urban region. ZUKUR relied on an analytical basis that identified existing and future challenges in the Ruhr region and at the same time added value to the state of research on resilience and environmental justice. In this light, reflexive adaptation capacities and strategic moments are to be developed and translated into concrete goals and measures. In doing so, the topics of climate resilience, urban community, integration as well as the cross-cutting area of governance will be addressed at each of the levels. The versatile thematic orientation of the project is made possible by the comprehensive commitment of the Faculty of Spatial Planning at TU Dortmund University. The living laboratories thereby provide innovations for a further development of the status quo over the entire project period.

Location & approach
The TU Dortmund campus is located near the Dortmund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, while the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. Coming from the A45, you can turn onto Stockumer Straße via Universitätsstraße. This in turn is connected to Baroper Straße, along which Campus South extends. If you take the exit of the A-40, the route via Emil-Figge Straße, Marie-Curie Allee to Baroper Straße is appropriate. If you turn from Baroper Straße into August-Schmidt Straße, you have the opportunity to reach the parking lot directly behind the GB III.
The South Campus is connected via Stockumerstraße by bus lines 440 and 449, which run every 10 minutes. Campus South can be reached on foot from the Am Gardenkamp stop, and the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station is also located near the Eichlinghofen stop. The bus lines connect to the U42 light rail line at the Barop Parkhaus stop, which provides connections to the Dortmund-Hombruch district and Dortmund downtown.
From Dortmund-Eichlinghofen, the South Campus is connected to the H-Bahn network via the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station. Line 1 runs here every 10 minutes, and the South Campus is served by the Campus Süd stop.
A connection to Campus North is also provided. Line 2 shuttles between Campus North and Campus South every 5 minutes.
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 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".Zum Lageplan
