IREK Integrales Raumentwicklungskonzept

Creation of scenarios for the future spatial development of the communities of Gossensa├č, Mareit, Kematen, Sterzing in the South Tyrolean Wipptal, based on qualitative interviews with the various local stakeholders.

The framework for IREK is an interdisciplinary INTERREG project in which the transnational (in this case Austria and Italy) interest of additional alpine land use in the face of natural hazard potential is expressed. The overall project includes municipalities of the northern and southern Wipptal, i.e. the valleys on both sides of the Brenner Pass.

developed together with Lisa Kofink, Institute for Regional Development – EURAC research Bolzano 2010.
