Description

The development of the Lake Constance region is led by a variety of different actors, institutions and strategies. Common to all these is that they pursue predominantly short to medium term planning horizons and are trapped in the division of labor policies. However, the general trends such as demographic changes, climate change and others do not stop at the Lake Constance. To be prepared for their long-term effects on the development of the region, the aim of the project is a regional Foresight study.
Due to the contribution of broadly common future images, the strategic intelligence in the region should be supported and effect a greater coherence in the on going decisions. The thematic focus is on ensuring an innovative economic development. For this purpose participation approaches for key development trends are identified, further discussed for their significance, and most recently by deriving concrete recommendations for action make them workable for the region.

The consortium consists of University St. Gallen = project leader, of University of Liechtenstein, University Constance and of Zeppelin University Friedrichshafen.

Reference to Liechtenstein

Da negative Entwicklungen wie demografischer Wandel und Klimaveränderungen vor Liechtensteiner Grenzen nicht halt machen, betreffen sie die ganze Region Bodensee. Ziel des Projekts ist durch breit getragene gemeinsame Zukunftsbilder zur Verbesserung der strategischen Intelligenz in der Region beizutragen und eine innovative Wirtschaftsentwicklung sicherzustellen. Neben einer regionalen Foresightstudie werden die Ergebnisse in konkreten Handlungsempfehlungen aufgezeigt werden.
