About the Project:

The project was aiming at the improvement of planning processes by improving the transregional communication and decision structures.

The outcome of the project is a thematic network and a centre of excellence for improving the political (e.g. spatial planning authorities, municipalities, ministries, Governmental and Non-Governmental-Organisations) and entrepreneurial policy-making-processes in the fields of spatial planning, transport and regional development. Within the network/centre problems and weak spots related to the presently implemented mechanism, instruments and management methods have been discussed and a new best-practice approach has been developed for supporting and improving the planning processes. For this, several activities for technology transfer have been carried out in order to train decision-makers on the newly developed approach for improving their performance in spatial planning, regional development and transport/logistics.
