In this report, three case studies are presented which describe anthropocentric systems implemented in different European countries. These cases are discussed with regard to the term “anthropocentric”. Furthermore they are discussed with regard to their economic viability as well as with particular reference to the specific conditions of Southern and Eastern Europe.
