URBAN-NET Pilot call

Basic Information

Website www.urban-net.org
Aim of the joint call Sustainable urban development is the wide framework within which research consortia for full research projects and pre-research work are invited to choose a focus and elaborate a research problem. This is an opportunity for researchers to formulate and propose important research topics of common interest that might also inform the focus of future calls and other joint activities of URBAN-NET. The main topics for research are the interactions between urban functions and sectors (e.g. economy; environment; housing) rather than developing more sustainable approaches within them. The resilient city is such a crosscutting theme integrating the economic, social/cultural and ecological dimensions of sustainability and demanding a multidisciplinary approach.
