Digitally drawn vision image from the ISEK hoch vier project. You can see the four cities of the SOUTH ALPINE SPACE (Hermagor, Bruneck, Spittal an der Drau and Lienz), which have been symbolically brought together. They are connected through rivers, mountain ranges, valleys and railway lines as well as cycle routes. You can see many different activities, buildings, objects and colours as well as some highlighted objects (schools/universities, sharing stations, railway stations, etc.).

ISEK4 was a transnational pilot project for the development of a new planning instrument. It dealt with two spatial realities that - despite their obvious necessity - are rarely considered in conjunction in existing planning instruments: the inner city and the functional region. The ISEK4 concept supplements the classic ISEK approach by including the regional symbiosis as a »second level of action« in addition to the four inner cities (Bruneck, Hermagor-Pressegger See, Lienz and Spittal an der Drau). The pilot project was based on an interdisciplinary approach and has been developed together with steering groups from the four cities: Within eight months, knowledge and needs were collected, recorded and positioned in various workshop formats.

The final report on the project was published in February 2023.
