Nadine Haufe, M.A.

Profil

Mobility and energy research, Sustainable Consumption, Social Inequality, Social Milieus and Lifestyles, Communication and Participation, Sustainable Urban and Neighbourhood Development, Evaluation

Nadine Haufe studied sociology, political science and modern history as well as business engineering, with a specialisation in civil engineering at the Technische Universität Braunschweig. Since October 2013 she is a researcher and lecturer at the Research Unit Sociology at the TU Wien.

Research

Her research activities focus on sustainable mobility- and energy research (e.g. mobility behaviour, residential energy use, behavioural change), sustainable consumption (e.g. social inequality, social milieus and life styles), sustainable urban and neighbourhood development (e.g. smart cities, social inequality), planning-oriented communication and participation (e.g. design and implementation of local communication and participation processes, co-creation, sustainability communication, strategic communication) and the evaluation of planning processes.

Nadine Haufe is the TU Wien research leader in the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project "SHARED GREEN DEAL - Social sciences & Humanities for Achieving a Responsible, Equitable and Desirable GREEN DEAL" (2022-2027) and in the project "Urban Heat Equality - Nature-based solutions to urban heat islands and their impacts on social equality" (Austrian Climate Research Programme, 2022-2025). She also leads at the Research Unit Sociology the FFG-funded Mobility of the Future lead project "Trans|formator:in - Integrated Transformation of Public Mobility Spaces" (2022-2026) .

She was the TU Wien research leader in the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project "SUNRISE - Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods - Research and Implementation in Europe" (2017-2021) anda research assistant in the projects "Simultan - Simultaneous Planning Environment for Building Clusters in Resilient, Resource and Highly Energy Efficient Neighbourhoods" (development of scenarios for the urban energy system of the future; 2014 - 2017) and "Pro:Motion - Promoting Active Mobility through Target Group Orientation and Motivation (2014-2016)", both funded by the FFG. From 2013 to 2016, she was a PhD student in the interdisciplinary PhD programme "Urban Energy and Mobility Systems" (URBEM-DK), which was established by Wiener Stadtwerke Holding AG and TU Wien. She is writing her dissertation on the topic of "Energy-consuming everyday practices, the City and Social Milieus".

Teaching

Her teaching activities include the topics of energy-conscious spatial development, sociology of sustainability, planning-oriented communication and participation, evaluation in planning as well as sociology in the urban environment, social inequality and social change. In addition to teaching at TU Wien in the spatial planning degree programme (Bachelor & Master), she also teaches at FH Salzburg in the Master's programme "Smart Building in Smart Cities" and in the university course "Sustainable Building" at TU Graz and TU Wien.

Memberships

Nadine Haufe is a Council member of the Urban Research Section of the Austrian Association for Sociology (ÖGS).

SHARED GREEN DEAL

Social sciences & Humanities for Achieving a Responsible, Equitable and Desirable GREEN DEAL

2022 - 2027: EU funded, Horizon 2020, Project website, opens an external URL in a new window

The HORIZON 2020 SHARED GREEN DEAL’s core goal is to stimulate shared actions on Green Deal initiatives across Europe, by providing Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) tools. SHARED GREEN DEAL is running 24 social experiments around six EU Green Deal policy areas, to stimulate behavioural, social and cultural change across Europe as well as to establishing a multi-stakeholder Green Deal policy network in partnership with the European Commission.

Trans|formator:in

Integrated transformation of public mobility spaces

09.2022 - 08.2026: Lead project Mobilität der Zukunft, FFG funded, Project website, opens an external URL in a new window

The FFG-funded "Mobilität der Zukunft" lead project Trans|formator:in aims at piloting transferable approaches for an integrated transformation of public mobility spaces. Based on 7 pilot spaces in Austria, the project will realise the (re)transformation of predominantly car-oriented traffic spaces into attractive mobility spaces and also explicitly initiate the necessary processes of discussion, participation, learning and behavioural changes towards more active mobility in society.

Urban Heat Equality

Nature-based solutions to urban heat islands and their impacts on social equality

11.2022 - 02.2025: Austrian Climate Research Programme – ACRP, Climate & Energy Fund

The ACRP-project URBAN HEAT EQUALITY focused Nature-based solutions (NbS) to urban heat islands and their impacts on social equality. The project examines policies that aim at promoting NbS to urban heat in the city of Vienna. NbS run the risk of increasing social inequalities. Based on an analysis of vulnerabilities, policy outputs and impacts on social equality and resilience, the project assesses the integration of vulnerable groups in current and future policy-making.

SUNRISE

Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods – Research and Implementation in Europe

05.2017 - 04.2021: EU-funded, Horizon 2020, Project website, opens an external URL in a new window

The EU-funded Horizon 2020 project SUNRISE ("Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods - Research and Implementation Support in Europe"), aims to promote sustainable neighbourhood mobility. The mission of SUNRISE is to facilitate shared learning on new, collaborative ways to address common urban mobility challenges at neighbourhood level through "Neighbourhood Mobility Labs", laying the foundation for a sustainable neighbourhood mobility planning approach. In the Horizon 2020 project SUNRISE, co-creation is the key concept for the development, implementation and evaluation of sustainable mobility solutions at the district or neighbourhood level. The innovative approach of SUNRISE lies in the concrete involvement of actors from different social fields of action in all phases of the innovation process. In individual neighbourhoods in Bremen (Hulsberg), Budapest (Törökör), Jerusalem (Baka), Malmö (Lindängen), Southend-on-Sea (City Centre), Thessaloniki (Neo Rysio), co-creative processes are initiated and tested in SUNRISE to develop, implement and evaluate sustainable mobility solutions at the neighbourhood level.
