English abstract:
This paper outlines the background of the collaborative project by Florida Atlantic University and University of Technology Vienna as well as the theoretical background of metropolitan development and metropolitan regions. Based on two case study regions - Centrope and South Florida - challenges of economic development and strategic positioning withing the local and global scale were tackeled. Due to the huge difference in the urban structure as well as development dynamics the two regions seemed hard to compare on the first sight. Nevertheless, the overall goal of the project is to identify the similarities as well as the main differences of these two regions with respect to spatial structures, economic and social characteristics,
how the regions deal with the future development and, finally, to elaborate actions and policy recommendations for strategic planning efforts.
