The predicted dynamic population and economic development for the urban agglomeration area around Graz (490,000 inhabitants by 2050) represents a major social challenge in terms of resource consumption, supply and disposal infrastructure, mobility or affordable housing. In addition to urban densification, development areas in the future must also be developed in the future Close to the city of Graz as well as supraregional centers. The S-Bahn network of Styria, which connects the provincial capital of Graz with surrounding municipalities and cities, is home to an immense potential for the future that needs to be targeted. The aim of the project is the development of test and demonstration areas in the framework of selected city (sub) development projects along the innovation axis Graz-Gleisdorf. For the future development of urban living quarters, an innovation and technology portfolio with a focus on smart urban space, compact settlement structure, mix of uses, city of short distances, generation housing, intermodal mobility, energy, integrated building and information and communication technologies (ICT) will be developed. It should be implemented in 2019/2020 demonstration areas.
