History

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Ecological and Revitalizing Urban Transformation continues the activities of  the Görlitz Centre for Expertise in Urban Revitalization (Görlitz Kompetenzzentrum Revitalisierender Städtebau). The latter was founded at the initiative of the German Foundation for Monument Protection (Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz) as an outpost of Technische Universität Dresden in 2004. From 2004 to 2013 it was led by Prof. Dr. Jürg Sulzer, who also held the endowed chair of Urban Transformation and Research at the faculty of architecture at TU Dresden.

The Görlitz Competence Centre worked on innovative ideas and strategies for the future of the European City. The core mission was to provide qualified and practical advice to city administrations, private stakeholders and public institutions regarding the future of the European city.
