Digital Forest Lab: Haselberg

- A place for practice-oriented learning and research!

With financial support from the Erich Schmidt Sattelmühle Foundation, four hectares of forest area are being developed into a virtual learning and teaching place and used for future-oriented, innovative research and teaching.

The Digital Forest Lab Haselberg is a virtual and analog teaching and learning location east of Eberswalde. The basis is a locally diverse forest area managed by the University for Sustainable Development Eberswalde . The multifaceted forest area offers numerous interactive opportunities to present the local forest ecosystem in its ecological and economic range. For this purpose, a   virtual forest tour  was created, which, in combination with data recordings on site, by means of data loggers and dendrometers, enables a comprehensive immersion in the forest ecosystem. Students can deepen their knowledge in the context of   research projects.

The th ree-part virtual forest tour interactively conveys theoretical content using the practical example of Haselberg in 360° stations . The free offer is aimed at students of the forest of all semesters and forest enthusiasts to explore the forest online in a self-learning and interest-based way.

In addition, there is a permanent experimental area and student research projects that deal more deeply with certain aspects. If you have any questions or comments about the project, there is a contact form.
