Mobilization of potentials for use of commercial land through E-Government strategies


The project focuses on the design and pilot-implementation of integrated ICT-solutions (integrating processes and organisations) that are embedded in local and regional strategies for E-Government and land use/real estate management, improving the use and revitalisation of existing buildings or inner-city sites.
Focus of the work was an ICT-solution for innovative land use and real estate management on basis of an integrated and interdisciplinary model for a concrete location which can function as a role model, a better communication of actors involved in land use management and the further development of existing databases for revitalisation and management of sites.
The following work-packages were envisioned: Investigation and analysis on the status-quo in German towns and cities and of users’ preferences (within and outside of administrations), design and implementation of a prototype for one city administration, internal discussion of the preliminary results in different project phases with experts, comprehensive knowledge exchange with municipalities and project management and exchange with other REFINA-projects.
The implementation was based on the KWIS-software and takes place in the city of Gera. The wide distribution of KWIS-applications in local administrations supported the dissemination of the project results.
