Project Library


The project library provides an insight in practices of urban policy and urban planning in Luxembourg. Therefore the CIPU describes projects and initiatives in a nutshell that could be interesting for other actors involved in urban policy and planning within the European Union and beyond. The project sheets examine a project or an initiative from the perspective of its rationale for action, its objectives, its timeframe it was realised, the implementation steps, the involved key actors and much more.
