In June 2014, our project partners from the Urban Renewal Office opened their new community center in one of our study areas – Hippviertel in Ottakring. The “Herbststrasse” will also serve as a place of encounter within our “urban living lab“. Below are some impressions from their opening event.
You´ll find more information on their ongoing activities here (in german).
The ICEC team is spread over three countries and is supported by the expertise of the advisory board.
Each country has a partner research institute and a stakeholder partner. By bringing together researchers, policymakers and urban stakeholders to conduct research we hope our results will be able to shape municipal policies and help create integrative neighbourhoods.

The ICEC Team met in Vienna to officially start the project and visit the Viennese case study areas.
International research has shown that urban neighbourhoods are still important arenas of social interactions and places of interethnic coexistence. Super-diversity in the neighbourhood is a microcosm, mirroring problem constellations at the city scale. Yet problems within diversity-shaped neighbourhoods require locally determined solutions. Thus, municipal policies have increasingly taken a territorial focus when addressing social and integration problems through neighbourhood-based initiatives.
