RFSC & national stakeholders: a view from Germany

  1. 1. The Reference Framework for European Sustainable Cities (RFSC) A first assessment by the German-Austrian URBAN-Network Barbara Bühler Network Coordinator, German Association for Housing, Urban and Spatial Development
  2. 2. The German-Austrian URBAN-Network Based on the Community Initiative URBAN in the past funding periods Supports German and Austrian cities in implementing integrated urban development measures which are financed by EU Structural Funds The regular network conferences provide a platform for intense exchange of experiences, knowledge transfer and political awareness Direct dialogue between 4 levels: European, federal, regional and municipal 14 member cities from Germany (Berlin, Bremen, Meißen, Leipzig, Saarbrücken, Ludwigshafen, Mannheim, Pforzheim, Regensburg, Dortmund, Duisburg, Fürstenwalde) and Austria (Wien, Graz)
  3. 3. The network visiting an ERDF-funded project in Meißen (Germany) in October 2012 (Photographs: Claudia Hübschmann)
  4. 4. A first assessment of the RFSC Based on a training session with 7 network cities in Dortmund (Germany) on 27th September 2013 POSITIVE ASPECTS: Very flexible tool that can be used at any time during the project cycle Individual use: Suitable for a variety of different stakeholders Well-structured, appealing user-interface Complex but not too complicated Good tool to evaluate and compare projects Self-evaluation instead of external evaluation of projects SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT: Some technical issues still need to be solved Copying of projects would be very useful Translation of indicators into national languages ‚Bundling of projects‘: Evaluation of an integrated urban development strategy which comprises a range of different measures
