In research and teaching, Lars Bernard represents geoinformatics across all departments at TU Dresden with a focus on geoinformation systems (GIS), geodata infrastructure and geoinformatics services for spatiotemporal simulation. He is also the university's Chief Digitalisation and Information Management Officer and a member of the extended Rectorate. Furthermore, he has taken on functions in a number of national and international committees, for example Lars Bernhard is the spokesperson for the 'National Research Data Infrastructure for Earth System Sciences' (NFDI4Earth).
