Urban shrinkage has become a common pathway (not only) in post-socialist cities, which represents new challenges for traditionally growth-oriented spatial planning. Though in the post-socialist area, the situation is even worse due to prevailing weak planning culture and resulting uncoordinated development. The case of the city of Ostrava illustrat...

Pojem „governance“ lze chápat jako komplex řídicích struktur, který představuje síť různých institucí (veřejných i soukromých), na všech úrovních vládnutí, a vazby mezi nimi. Jedná se o velmi aktuální téma i v ČR, zvláště v souvislosti se zaváděním integrovaných nástrojů rozvoje území (zvláště ITI – Integrované územní investice) a hledáním efektivn...

Growth of city outskirts’ importance in contrast to city centres has been characteristic for structural changes of cities in past decades (i.e. Siebel 2000). Suburbanization has become the driving force of this change. This process of cities expansion beyond their original borders deepens and hanges the basic dichotomy – centre vs. periphery18. Pra...

Project
The shortage of financial resources is a Europe-wide problem. Coming out of the economic and financial crisis, countries as well as municipalities have decreasing means to fulfil all their public commitments. For this reason, the main aim of this COST Action is the development of a common framework for value capturing and the provision of innovative tools for public value capture based on comparative analysis to optimize the allocation of development costs and benefits as well as to disencumber the public budget. While a considerable database exists, it nonetheless shows big gaps in the data and in some cases disagreement between sources of data. Because of the different terms of unearned increments and classifications of value capture it is not possible to compare different studies of several countries. This gives strength to the idea of approaching the European Union for a study based on a network of specialist country representatives to get a common terminology and classification. A very important result will be the implementation of a permanent Europe-wide network of land management experts to interchange the knowledge concerning public value capture and its dissemination to policy-makers and the general public. This network allows the improvement of existing tools by detailed discussions with experts of countries that have similar tools. On the other hand, thought-provoking impulses can be given by countries that have a totally different understanding of value capture. Participants from more than 20 countries are willing to work for the socio-economic breakthrough of public value capture.

At the turn of the century, architects and urban planners have to deal with rapid urbanisation and the pressure of growth and investments often threatened architectural heritage. This is especially relevant for cities of the former socialist countries, where the transition to capitalism result in economic growth and significant urban transformations. The modern architecture of the 20th century is most vulnerable in such transformations: in many cities, its value is not recognised; this heritage remains unknown and unprotected. At the same time, investments into the real estate development have been bringing resources for the heritage preservation. Nowadays globalisation, demographic transition and urban shrinkage affect cities, especially small ones, in many countries. Grown or even founded in the last century, such cities now are suffering from economic and population decline and often face a problem of architectural heritage preservation without having enough resources. On the other hand, in shrinking cities, the heritage is protected from the destructive influence of investments, developers and commercial activities. The existing practices and approaches to the architectural heritage preservation have been developed in order to confront the pressure of growth and little is known what happens in the conditions of urban shrinkage. How these new conditions affect architectural heritage? Which disadvantages or advantages urban shrinkage brings to the heritage preservation? Can architectural heritage contribute to the softening of urban shrinkage negative effects? The research interest in the small and medium-sized cities is growing as well as research in the field of urban shrinkage. However, urban shrinkage has attracted little attention from heritage conservation professionals

Central European old industrial regions undergone in globalized economy dramatical processes of transformation and restructuring. They are facing the strong external competition of other industrial regions resulting in economic decline. Such regions suffer from endogenous barriers as well, which could be conceptualized as negative path dependency and weak economic governance. The main aim of the research project is to explore the main drivers of long-term paths development of most significant traditional branches from multiscale perspectives. Moreover, the paths development research of selected branches will take into account the differentiating role of governance, actors, institutions and place leadership generating policy initiatives with different impact on paths development. In order to reach our research goals, the combined methodology will be used: the mix of quantitative and qualitative approaches, methods and techniques. Our theoretical contribution will be a critical reflection of concepts such as lock-ins etc. Practical contribution will be the formulation of policy recommendations. This project is supported by the Czech Science Foundation through a research grant no. 18-11299S
