Resources form the basis for the economy, prosperity, security and innovation. This makes it all the more important to use them responsibly and sustainably. At TU Bergakademie Freiberg, technologies and solution approaches are developed to meet central societal challenges with regard to sustainable resource use. Its profile links the interrelated profile fields of GEO, MATERIAL, ENERGY and ENVIRONMENT in research and teaching and is consistently oriented towards the requirements of the future.
Humanitarian responsibility, environmental and climate protection, efficient use of scarce raw materials and sustainable provision of energy form key motivators of our research. Many of the innovations resulting from our research contribute worldwide to moving closer to the goal of closing the energy and material cycles.
