Abstract: The analysis presented here focuses on the latest German legislation changes introduced in order to make the planning and building of infrastructure projects more harmonious and more effective. From a due-process perspective, International and European Environmental law played a pioneer role. by leading the German legislators to introduce an earlier public participation in its extremely complex system of spatial and sectorial planning. At first it mainly addressed sustainability. Then, after a few major infrastructure projects were confronted with massive resistance by the population affected, a rethinking about the citizens´ involvement at an early stage became necessary, aiming at streamlining and speeding up legally binding decisions on the more controversial infrastructure projects. As a result, the Administrative Procedure Code was expanded to incorporate the "Law for broadening the public participation and for the standardization of the procedures for determining sectorial plans". In order to debate, in an interdisciplinary way, the role that the law is able to play in communication procedures, this article discusses the essential factors impacting the different types of plans and planning. It then questions the strategies leading to acceptance of certain projects and the trade-offs between speed of implementation and the respect for public participation rights.
Description: Today, we are witnessing an extraordinary fast changing world with multiple disruptive technologies. The growing power of artigicial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, big data and the so called IoT (Internet of the Things) have brought the need to adapt for many individuals and organizations, which is resulting in radical new forms of business modeling, policies, societal systems and society itself, as well. This book focuses, not exclusively but mainly, on a set of real cases across several European regions where innovation modeling is needed urgently. By documenting the analysis on the new creative ideas and on the concrete bottlenecks to implement innovations capable of satisfying market needs and its challenges we attempt to distil the wisdom from the ongoing reality.
