We address the "Open Science" and implement an urban citizen observation network run by, e.g. allotment gardeners.

Open Urban Climate Observatory Berlin for environmental research and applications
Project openUCO
The BMBF joint project AI-NET-PROTECT develops concepts, architectures and methods for automated network operation and secure networks on trustworthy devices for critical infrastructures and companies. The Chair of Climatology participates in planning, design and setting up of a test infrastructure for a hybrid network on the Campus Charlottenburg of TU Berlin.
