Since 1991 the network carries out an annually intensive seminar. The seminar language is English. The subject changes every year. It is always concerned with regional or physical planning. Every year in March, 7 students from every participating university plus one or two teachers meet at one place. They first present a prepared case study and then work on a special project in groups of 6 or 7, thus comparing the different national approaches and making inter-national proposals. At the end of the week, the participants try to draw conclusions in a summarizing reunion.
