Dr. Eva Haslauer holds a PhD in Applied Geoinformatics from the University of Salzburg. She finished in 2015 with a Doctoral Thesis about “GIS-based Backcasting: An innovative method for parameterisation of sustainable spatial planning and resource management.”
Backcasting is an alternative way of Forecasting that does not reveal possible futures, but tries to start from desired futures scenarios and casts back until present is reached. In doing so, Backcasting reveals new development paths how the desired future scenario(s) could possibly be achieved.
Today Eva works as project leader at Porsche Austria GmbH & CO OG in the department Digital Solutions where she leads digital projects. They cover for instance App and Website Development or Connected Car solutions. She additionally supports speciality departments like Market Research in their daily work with tools and know how gained from the collaboration with Know Center Graz.
