Through his new position, Barthel will focus on designing solutions for sustainable urban development and boost the collaboration between science and business.

The project Future-Proof Cities will be the centre of this collaboration and develop solutions to make cities smarter, healthier and safer amid growing environmental change.

Barthel has been part of developing the discourse on urban social-ecological systems for several years. This has also made him one of the most cited researchers in the world on urban sustainability.

For the second consecutive year, Barthel has been listed on the exclusive Clarivate Analytics overview of the world's most cited researchers. The list recognizes world-class researchers selected for their exceptional research performance, demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in Web of Science.
