Expert opinion on the preparation of an inter-agency strategy for the "Social City"

The coalition agreement 2013 between CDU/CSU and SPD stipulates to continue the programme "Social City" as the master programme of social integration within the framework of the promotion of urban development. It is to constitute the foundation for an inter-agency strategy "Social City", on the basis of which development funds from programmes of different departments in areas with increased needs for integration are being pooled additively. For the implementation of this mandate and in preparation of such a strategy the research assignment "Expert opinion on the prep-aration of an inter-agency strategy" compiled social trends with their effects on disadvantaged districts, analysed the workings of existing inter-agency activities, iden-tified potential additional fields of action and specified potential forms of cooperation.

Project duration: November 2014 – May 2016

The energy-efficient construction of municipal and social infrastructure

Accompanying research and an evaluation of pilot initiatives

The ambitious climate change targets of the German federal government demand efficient yet cost effective solutions for an improved carbon footprint. The federal government has promoted innovative approaches and transferable concepts for the energy-efficient construction of new municipal and social infrastructure by means of a pilot initiative. In the context of the research project the selected pilot initiatives were accompanied and evaluated.

Project duration: October 2010 - March 2015

The investment processes of condominium owners' associations with particular emphasis on energy-efficiency and age-appropriate renovations

Condominium owners' associations too are concerned with investments in energy-efficiency and accessibility. It is clear they face formidable challenges here in terms of decision-making and the organisation of resolutions – even more so than they do with mere maintenance. They must work together and where possible unanimously decide which measures they want to implement, how they should be financed and who should plan and execute them. As part of the research project, the investment processes of condominium owners' associations were analysed with the aid of case studies.

Project duration: May 2012 – February 2015
