Introduction on reference cases

Reference cases are presented in an Implementation Lab to exchange knowledge that could bear relevance to a study case that was subject of an intervision workshop.
The reference cases provided input for the brainstorm sessions to broaden the perspectives of the participants and to deliver new approaches or spatial concepts that could be useful to help “solve” the problem statement of the study case. Reference cases can be found via the year table or via entering key words in the search field in the left column of the reference case web page.
