Besides the overall objectives of the project, Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences aims to achieve the following set of targets:

  • Exploitation and integration of experiences of the German reference city Frankfurt am Main

  • Exchange of knowledge and know-how between the German and the international cities

  • Integration of the RP planning methodology into overall spatial and urban planning practice

  • Adaptation of RP approach to municipal administration structures and procedures

  • Capacity building and knowledge transfer methods and materials

  • Development of workshops/ training units for administrations, the public and academia

  • Transferability, dissemination and valorization of results, knowledge and methodologies


Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences takes part in the following work packages of the project:

  • Coordination

  • Framework data and information

  • Developing the RP trans-sectoral methodology

  • Integrating RP methodology into spatial planning and urban development procedures

  • Municipal administrative structures and economic effects

  • RP "entry projects" in the case cities

  • Capacity building/ training units

  • Transferability and feedback loop

  • Dissemination and valorization of results


Five results are to be met by Rapid Planning in five years:

  • Realizing a trans-sectoral planning tool (strategy, methodology and practice) in the case cities with a maximum level of readiness for application in other cities

  • Initiating a shift in the structure of urban authority, management and administration as well as in the way of thinking and decision-making – all to be done with special regard to trans-sectoral resource efficient planning

  • Establishing a thorough capacity building for administrations, academia, public and exchange activities in the targeted cities to better integrate the trans-sectoral approach

  • Installing a feedback loop and constant checking of transferability

  • Providing verified data bases for the methodology development, which include:

    • Physical (climate, morphological, etc.), human (political, socio-economic, population, etc.) and geographic data

    • Information on supply and disposal infrastructure

    • Information characterizing legislation and policy framework of the case-cities
