>> Overview of work areas and projects

The participation of relevant stakeholders – be it professionals, citizens or third sector organisations – is always an essential part of the realisation of the mission.

Working philosophy

Urban Expert supports you with “brain and heart” in mastering your challenges and tasks. Locally adapted, innovative solutions and processes are paramount, not “off-the-shelf” solutions.

Integrated and implementation-oriented solutions

…integrated and implementation-oriented policies, concepts, action plans and projects are developed for holistic and interdisciplinary solutions leading to change.

Participatory and locally adapted approach

…relevant stakeholders are involved in the development and implementation of policies, action plans and projects that are based on local needs and opportunities and build on existing structures and potentials.

Development and implementation from a single source

… we assist and support projects from the conceptualization to implementation; developing advising, implementing, evaluating and adapting policies and projects to new challenges and needs – all from one source!

Open to new ideas

…we like to deal with new challenges and topics and combine research and practice in order to develop and implement innovative, user-friendly and tailor-made solutions and processes.
