Dr. Editha Marquardt

Editha Marquardt is a Senior Researcher in the project Town & Gown. Cooperation between city administration and regional research institutions. She served as interim professor for Human-Economic-Relations at the Department of Geography at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in 2017/18 and also as interim professor for Human Geography in North America at Heidelberg University (together with Dr. Gregg Culver) in Wintersemster 2016/17. Before that she worked at the ZAK | Center of Cultural and General Studies at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) for four years.

She studied cultural sciences, German and Spanish studies at the universities of Leipzig and Edinburgh. In 2004 she attained a PhD in cultural theory at Leipzig University. After her studies Editha Marquardt worked at the Chair of Economic History (Munich University). Later she became a researcher at the Collaborative Research Centre 417 Processes of Regional Identification. The example of Saxony (Leipzig University). She was a holder of a scholarship at the German Youth Institute Munich/Halle (DJI) and worked at the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz.

Research Areas

Editha Marquardt´s research interests lie in the field of urban geography. She deals with current urban developments in the knowledge society, sustainable transformations in urban spaces and urban mobility. Transdisciplinary approaches play an important role here.

Additionally, she is interested in research questions concerning the (visual) perception of region and city as well as identification of and with regions and cities. What makes a city a city, a region a region?

Current Project

Alongside with Ulrike Gerhard, Editha Marquardt is head of the living lab "Urban Office - Sustainable Urban Development in the Knowledge-based Society", which has received three years’ worth of funding from the state Baden-Württemberg and supports a selective range of projects from the International Building Exhibition Heidelberg (IBA).

Currently, Editha Marquardt is working on the project Town & Gown – Better cooperation between cities and research institutions (2018-2022). This project is part of the research project Witi – Transfer of knowledge und ideas for innovation in public administration , at the German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer and is carried out in cooperation with the Real-world Lab Urban Office at Heidelberg University.

Town & Gown - Better cooperation between cities and research institutions

Research institutions rely on their regional environment and at the same time strongly influence it. A successful cooperation between research institutions and their cities is central in the knowledge society, but challenging due to different strategic and legal planning horizons.

The five-year project Town & Gown is therefore intended to use current research and selected examples to help improve cooperation between city administrations and local research institutions. The theoretical frame of reference is the triple or quadruple helix model (Etzkowitz & Leydesdorff; Carayannis & Campbell).

Town & Gown works together with regional partners such as the Rhineland-Palatinate Future Initiative (ZIRP), the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region (MRN), the City of Heidelberg, the Real-world Lab Urban Office at Heidelberg University and numerous other players. Based on this regional perspective, the aims are to develop and optimise capacities for the mutual transfer of ideas and knowledge and to give practical recommendations for a broader transfer.
