Masterclasses series - Urban Regeneration models' innovation and impact assessment

Urban regeneration can provide significant economic, social, and environmental impacts embedding sustainability principles to improve the use of resources, circularity, resilience, liveability, and quality of life. Planning, managing, and evaluating urban regeneration processes therefore requires integrating diversified skills and considering the contribution of the different actors. The masterclass cycle aims to provide the tools to understand and govern urban regeneration processes, considering innovative business models, value generation mechanisms, and the role of public and private stakeholders. The course will make use of international case studies, involve site visits to iconic projects, and host representatives of key players in urban regeneration.
