Dr. Wolfgang Haupt
Research Associate | Politics and Planning

Wolfgang Haupt joined IRS as a research associate in May 2019. He is part of the research group “Urban Sustainability Transformations Research” (formerly: “Institutional Change and Regional Public Goods”). From September 2020 to December 2021 he was Deputy Head of the research department "Institutional Change and Regional Common Goods". He currently acts as Deputy Head of the research group "Urban Sustainability Transformations". His research focuses primarily on the urban level. Currently, it mainly includes urban climate governance (climate change mitigation and adaptation), urban resilience, material and immaterial cultural and world heritage and its significance for urban development, and questions of innovation transfer between cities.

Wolfgang holds a bachelor's and a master's degree in geography from Technische Universität Dresden (2008-2014) and a Ph.D. in urban studies from Gran Sasso Science Institute L’Aquila and Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies Pisa (2015-2019). In his Ph.D. thesis he explored processes of learning among local policymakers (city-to-city learning) and how these are facilitated by transnational municipal climate networks.

In spring and autumn 2017 he conducted two visiting research stays at the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education in the Netherlands. Between October 2018 and May 2019 he worked as lecturer and coordinator of the international master programme „City Resilience Design and Management“ at the International University of Catalonia in Barcelona. Wolfgang Haupt regularly teaches at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya and the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, where he is currently completing his habilitation at the Chair of Regional Planning.

Projects

Ongoing Lead Projects

The lead project aims to understand the political construction and governance of critical infrastructures in relation to their spatiality. Infrastructures are increasingly viewed in terms of their vulnerability to disruption and the resulting security risks. Political resources are devoted to adequately securing "critical infrastructures" such as water supply and energy networks. <br/>But which infrastructures are considered critical and why? The perception and governance of infrastructures are particularly relevant for cities due to their high concentration of people, infrastructure, economic and cultural assets. Accordingly, urban climate adaptation, which seeks to prepare for disruptions such as extreme weather events, and the digitalisation of urban infrastructures, as a potential improvement tool but also as a possible new source of uncertainty for infrastructure networks, serve as fields of investigation.<br/> more info

Ongoing Third-party Funded Projects

ExTrass seeks to better prepare medium-sized and large cities in Germany for heavy rainfall and heat. To this end, restraining and enabling factors of urban climate adaptation are analysed and successfull measures are identified. A large part of the project work is undertaken in three case study cities: Potsdam, Remscheid and Würzburg. Here, among other things, the project team tests greening measures, works towards climate-sensitive urban planning, contributes data on city climate, educates the population on risks and improves contingency plans. In addition, opportunities for exchange are created so that cities can better learn from each other. more info

This project aims at analysing the climate change policy of the City of Turku and compare it with the experience of three comparable cities, Malmö, Rostock, and Groningen. The City of Turku aims at becoming a carbon-neutral city by 2029. The strategy encompasses an implementation programme and specific measures. Since similar strategies have been decided upon and implemented in many European cities, there is much to learn from other forerunner cities. more info

ExTrass wants to better equip medium-sized cities and towns in Germany against heat and heavy rain. To achieve this, the project examines the factors that hinder or enable urban climate adaptation and identifies examples of successful measures. One focus of the project will take place in three case study cities - Potsdam, Remscheid and Würzburg – which will test greening initiatives, pursue climate-adapted urban planning, extend datasets related to the urban climate, communicate climate risks to residents, and improve emergency planning. The project will also facilitate networking and knowledge exchange so that cities can learn from each other. more info

Ongoing Cross-departmental Projects

The bridge project "Disruption and spatial development: concepts on spatio-temporal dynamics, modes of perception and strategies of action" continues the conceptual elaboration of the disruption heuristic, uses it to interpret empirical findings in the lead project research (and beyond) and, conversely, incorporates suggestions from the empirical research of the lead projects into the further conceptual development. more info

Under the title "Energy Futures - Emerging Pathways in an Uncertain World!", the final conference of the alliance took place from 22 to 26 February 2021.
