Demonstration Projects of Spatial Planning

Logo Demonstration Projects of Spatial Planning (MORO)

Model projects are an important instrument for federal spatial planning to implement a stronger process, action and project oriented understanding of planning and politics. More campaigns and projects instead of programmes and planning is the principle for spatial development since the nineties.

With the action programme "Demonstration Projects of Spatial Planning" (MORO) the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure supports practical trials and implementations of innovative action approaches and instruments for spatial planning in co-operation with science and practice, i.e. together with participants on site, in the region.

For this purpose it funds and supervises:

The Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) within the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR) supervises the action programme "Demonstration Projects of Spatial Planning" (MORO). Its task is, to choose promising new action approaches as model projects, to accompany these projects and to deduce transferable results from them, to organise the transfer into practice and to give advice for changes of the statutory and pecuniary national framework.
