Urban infrastructures within the "Stadtumbau" programme under growth and shrinking conditions
Project of Urban development grants
This research project focused on measures in which funds provided by the "Stadtumbau" (urban restructuring) urban development funding programme were used to adapt urban infrastructures. The project examined reasons for as well as the planning and implementation of infrastructural adaptation measures in the municipalities that took part in the "Stadtumbau" programme. These measures comprised the maintenance, modernisation, expansion and new construction as well as the deconstruction and relocation of relevant facilities. The research project highlights findings on the importance of urban infrastructure as well as general success factors and obstacles to the adaptation and derives recommended actions from the said findings.
