Site Visit in Vienna in the framework of the GreenScape Project Meeting

Date: 19.04.2024

The project meeting took place from April 17 to 19, 2024, at the Institute of Building Research & Innovation in Vienna, Austria. It brought together the project consortium for 3 days of intensive discussions, exploring urban development and sustainability strategies.

Highlights of the event included thematic workshops focusing on key project activities and challenges, engaging discussions on innovative nature-based solutions, and a site visit to explore best practices of real-world implementations in Vienna.

Jointly with the project meeting and complemented by participants representing associated partners, the 3rd site visit of GreenScape CE project focused on green facades. About 10 sites have been visited across Vienna and it was a great occasion for the project partners to learn from these good examples and best practices of nature-based solutions ranging from the most natural solutions, where plants are rooted directly in the soil, to the most technology intensive solutions, which are much more maintenance-intensive and at the same time more sensitive and less resilient.
