This two-week full-time residential programme will take place from 8th to 19th July in Bologna (first week) and Almada (second week), where you will to shape the urban landscape, district regeneration and decarbonising supply chains.
As cities are facing complex challenges such as integrating greening and regeneration actions in the city’s supply chains, the overall goal is to explore solutions to decarbonise urban energy systems and increase quality of life and infrastructure.
Researchers will investigate 2 case studies, in Bologna and Almada, and make use of a hands-on approach to explore the interconnections between district regeneration, urban low carbon energy transitions and the decarbonisation of city supply chains. The aim is to address the multiple dimensions:
- Technical feasibility
- Economical cost-effectiveness
- Social acceptability
- Market and business opportunities
- Policy implications.
The case-studies allow research teams to co-create solutions and practical outcomes while interacting with key stakeholders. The outcomes of researchers’ reports will be collected and included in the guideline for follow-up and implementation phase, creating real impact on local development (specific instructions will be provided). This is a valuable networking and career development opportunity, as you will get insights of current challenges and connect with potential collaborators and their organisations.
