The Institute of Environmental Engineering and Management at the University of Witten/Herdecke gGmbH (IEEM) unites the academic faculties of "technology" (engineering) and "economics" (including finance) and leads to an applied field of science. As an independent institute connected to the Private University of Witten/Herdecke, without budget from state, IEEM has to make sure that all its activities and projects are solely funded by public and private sponsors. All its work has to be focused on economic reality and technical practicability. The objective of IEEM is to elaborate innovative technical and economic solutions, to support implementation and finally to contribute to a sustainable economy and the protection of environmental resources.
