East-West Dialogue Project 

The East-West Dialogue Academic Exchange and Scientific Cooperation for Security, Cooperation and Civil Society Development in Europe Project is a project intended to break barriers and to contribute to interdisciplinary exchange of experts, scholars and scientists from fields not limited Environmental and Water Technology, Conflict Research and Management and Leadership.

The project which has the aim of water-conservation, sustainable land and water use through prevention and resolution of water conflicts caused by agricultural practices is managed by Dr. Enis Yazici and Prof. Dr. Ulrike Gayh (School of Engineering and Architecture).

A first digital winter school will be carried out with students from Germany and Russia. We have two main topics on which we work during the winter school end of November but also already starting on after a first online workshop (25./26.7):

  • Use of humic substances on agricultural land in Russia to increase Tolerance in crops to abiotic stress, pesticide exposure in bodies of water
  • Data Science goes Water Management: Use of AI and Machine Learning to predict natural disasters to reduce Water Conflicts
