Office for Spatial Development and Urban Planning
We work out expert studies and provide strategy advice. We develop and co-design solutions for public authorities and the political sphere as well as for managers of research clusters and creative businesses.
By applying innovative co-creative forms of participation as well as event and workshop formats, we strive towards greater precision in spatial structural change processes in favour of a sustainable society.
