First meeting of the internal steering group

On December 1, the first meeting of the internal steering group of the project took place. In this meeting, the KliOL project and the prototype of the greenhouse gas calculator were presented. Furthermore, it was discussed which data basis is available for the calculator at the UKHD. Subsequently, the GHG calculator will now be further developed with this knowledge in order to measure the GHG emissions of the UKHD.

Start of the Project

The KliOL project started on September 1, 2021. We are currently working intensively on the prototype of the GHG calculator. It is particularly important to work with the relevant stakeholders at Heidelberg University Hospital to determine which data basis can be used for this.
