Land-management strategies and the detached housing stock in shrinking municipalities – evidence from Germany

and medium-sized towns as not sufficient for graduates and specifically qualified persons: ‘If you are a qualified employee, especially in the crafts or services sector, you will quickly find a job. If you are a graduate it’s difficult depending on your profession’ (town with 17,000 inhabitants). This is confirmed by the following statement, which identifies problems especially for young professionals: ‘We haven’t yet been able to stop the exodus of younger people. The tendency has slowed down and many of the departures are job-motived. Today, you have professional

Choreographies of entrepreneurship. How different formats of co-presence are combined to facilitate knowledge creation in seed accelerator programs

, normative beliefs and affiliations co-exist. For instance, two persons can belong to the same organization and represent different professions. Both the similarity in organizational affiliation as well as the difference in terms of professional training can be mobilized and made consequential in interaction. The kind of differences – and commonalities – on which interactions between network partners are based is thus an open empirical question. These general ideas partly link up with the proximity discourse in regional economics and economic geography ( Boschma 2005

Conceptualising Quality in Spatial Planning


Quality discourses help to legitimate professions. This article therefore addresses the crucial question of how quality can be framed in spatial planning. Based on the context of spatial planning in Austria, this article introduces a normative framework for quality in spatial planning that considers the four dimensions of content, planning methodology, planning process and legal compliance, and shows howthese four dimensions are interlinked. Furthermore, it discusses how quality can be enhanced by concerted governmental action and further education for planners. It is argued that planners might need to adopt a new role as 'teachers' in planning processes to facilitate societal learning processes in order to raise the quality of planning. Finally, it is concluded that the quality debate in spatial planning can be useful to calibrate expectations of planners and society to directly influence sustainable spatial development through spatial planning, to communicate achievements in planning, to raise awareness for sustainable spatial development, and to improve legal frameworks, planning methodology, and planners' training and further education.

Zukunftsfähigkeit der Raumplanung?

Fehlentwicklungen hat die Raumplanung mittlerweile einen tief greifenden Verständniswandel erfahren. Raumplanung versteht sich heute weniger ais Macherin, sondern Raumplanung ist vielmehr Steuerungs-, Kommunikations- und Konsensbildungsprozess zugleich. Zum Selbstverständnis der Profession der heutigen Generation der Raumplaner/innen gehiört eine Planungskultur, die sich an Merkmalen wie fachliche und soziale Mitwirkung, Offenheit für unterschiedliche Lösungen, Verantwortung gegenüber kommenden Generationen orientiert. So formuliert es jedenfalls die Vereinigung für Stadt

Knowledge Hubs in the German Urban System: Identifying Hubs by Combining Network and Territorial Perspectives

/Takeuchi 1995 : 33; Amin/Cohendet 2004 : 23). The territorial approach adopted in this paper focuses on the creation of ‘critical mass’. People who work in knowledge-based professions are assumed to be knowledge-holders in metropolitan regions and form the labour market of a metropolitan region. A certain size of the labour market (often described using the term critical mass) attracts additional knowledge holders and may lead to the emergence of “sticky places” ( Markusen 1996 ). However, firms also cluster within local areas. Bathelt/Malmberg/Maskell (2004) explain
