Transfer Publications

The institute's knowledge transfer publications are instrumental in fostering dialogue between academia, politics, public administration, economics and civil society. These publications detail research findings and show in what way they might find application in different fields. The IRS produces two distinct kinds of publications for this purpose. On the one hand, the "IRS aktuell" and "IRS Annual" magazines provide a journalistic take on the institute's social science-based spatial research. On the other, publications like the policy papers or status reports focus on the way in which research findings may find application in politics, public administration, economics and civil society.
