LOST & FOUND. International Online-Symposium

In the Alps, de-industrialization is leaving behind former productive landscapes of impressive size and complexity. At the end of a 3-year research project on the transformation of industrial brownfields in the Alps led by Udo Weilacher, Professor of Landscape Architecture and Industrial Landscapes at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), selected results will be presented at an international online conference with public evening lectures.

Ten project partners had studied industrial brownfields and subsequently developed and tested sustainable transformation strategies. The project's multidisciplinary approach combined expertise in spatial and landscape planning, socio-economic sciences and ecological restoration, while working with local communities in Austria, Italy, France and Slovenia. The researchers now aim to encourage regional and local actors and stakeholders to take charge of brownfield conversion.
Contents of the symposium:
• Presentation of the specific approach of the project
• Discussion with experts and project partners from renowned European research and planning institutions
• Exchange of knowledge and experiences to deepen the understanding of the challenge of transforming industrial areas embedded in the unique landscape of the Alps
