Many technology based instruments and methods of planning that are available today have proved their benefits and utilisability in many fields. Still, there are necessary improvements left in order to enable all players involved in planning to use them in a beneficial way.
The aim of the study HOLODECK is to point out the necessary steps to make the use of technology based planning instruments and methods easier and more intuitive and to promote their application by showing
A key part of HOLODECK is a discussion process with key players in urban and transport planning. Their inclusion is guaranteed by an interdisciplinary project team consisting of the Austrian Institute for Regional Studies and Spatial Planning ÖIR (Spatial and transport planners), AIT Mobility (Austrian Institute of Technology), CEIT (research and development of planning technologies) as well as DI Andreas Lotz (chairman of the “Bundesfachgruppe für Raumplanung, Landschaftsplanung und Geographie der Bundeskammer der Architekten und Ingenieurkonsulenten”). This consortium does not only represent the target group of the study, but in addition each partner cultivates a network of contacts to key players which can be used to broaden the discussion process. The fact that CEIT is the main partner of CORP (Competence Center of Urban and Regional Planning) and member of ISOCARP (International Society of City and Regional Planners) ensures the connection to the international planning community.
Hence, the study HOLODECK enhances the inclusion of problem-orientated and user-friendly technology-based planning instruments on all levels of spatial and transport planning in Austria.
