Platform for innovative
site development

EUROPAN is the world’s largest ideas competition for innovative urbanism and architecture with a subsequent implementation process. EUROPAN cooperates with selected European municipalities and developers.

The framework is an open competition procedure, which is held every two years since 1989, for young international architects and urban planners under the age of 40. As a EUROPAN location partner, you contribute with a competition site for which the most committed architectural teams in Europe develop projects.

EUROPAN initiates pilot projects with a specifically designed process that demonstrates ground-breaking quality control strategies. With a competent and committed overall process — from preparation to implementation — EUROPAN’s site-partners establish themselves as key players in the competence network of the European planning culture.
