  • Optimised traffic systems based on real-time data
  • Planning and management supply and sanitation infrastructures
  • Managing social mobility in career, urban, and country living

The ever increasingly popular sign for phase “O“ (from the actual service provision according to the German HOAI Fee Scale for Architects and Engineers) urgently needs its own specialist discipline as neither a profession nor enough standards have existed up to the present. We, as an institute partner are significantly involved in setting up these new planning processes and are integrating our whole international knowledge into it.
