Eva Klien studied landscape ecology at the University of Münster, specialising in soil ecology, botany and geoinformatics. From 2003 to 2008, she was a research assistant at the Institute for Geoinformatics at the University of Münster. There she worked on various projects about semantic interoperability and completed her doctoral thesis in geoinformatics on the subject of "Semantic Annotation of Geographic Information".
Eva Klien has headed the Spatial Information Management department at Fraunhofer IGD since 2008. Since then, she has successfully coordinated and supported numerous national and international research and development projects focusing on environmental monitoring and infrastructure planning. Her team of experts in visual computing, geoinformatics, cloud computing and AI conducts cutting-edge applied research into the digitalisation, optimisation and automation of data-based processes. With their technologies, they help the economy, authorities and society to understand large amounts of data and complex systems, accelerate planning processes and facilitate communication between stakeholders.
Eva Klien is active as a consultant scientist in various committees and associations on subjects of environmental and geodata, including representing IGD in the Bitkom AK Geoinformation and as a member of the extended management board of the InGeoForum network.
