EUROPAN is the biggest design competition for urban planning and architecture. The 13th edition began on 2 March 2015 at around 50 sites around Europe. In the context of the project, more than 2,000 young architects and planners addressed the current issues facing urban planning and developed visionary ideas and strategic concepts for selected situations in various locations around Europe. 3C-Carbon and Landsberg am Lech took part with a local recreation area to the South of the city. The 3C-Carbon Group AG's Lechrain Technology Park is at the centre of the competition area, and is to be expanded to the North with an industrial residential area.
