ZAROF. urban & regional development

Ever since ZAROF. was founded, social processes of change and associated topics that are of relevance for the future have been the focus of our interest as well as our project work. While in the early and mid-90s these were the profound social transformation processes occurring in eastern Germany, since the turn of the new millennium this has mostly involved topics closely related to demographic change.

Analysing situations, identifying a need for action, devising development concepts, developing and implementing concrete projects and measures and monitoring their implementation and evaluating their effectiveness – ZAROF.’s range of activities covers all of these. As an interdisciplinary team, we work on tasks as part of EU Community Initiatives such as LEADER, URBAN and EQUAL as well as projects funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the European Social Fund (ESF) and the programme of the Federal Government and the Länder known as Soziale Stadt (Social City). Our previous clients also include federal ministries, state ministries, municipalities, cooperatives, private sector companies, non-profit organisations, the Innovation und Arbeit ("Innovation and Work") foundation and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
