The research project building blocks
The DEEP CITIES (CURBATHERI)-project is designed in seven work-packages (WP). Five WPs (from 1-5) respond to the research questions and are led by each partner institution. Two WP (6 and 7) are charged with the managerial and dissemination logistics of the research.
WP1 – Concepts
WP1 sets the theoretical arguments that will guide the research at the different stages of analysis.
WP3 – Laboratories
WP3 Develops further lessons learned from the observatory stage and explores participative methods (face-to-face and digital) previously identified as relevant in the case studies, which at this stage serve as ‘Laboratories’.
WP 5 – Evaluations and recomendations
WP5 draws evaluations and recommendations as a conclusory stage.
WP2 – Observatories
WP2 identifies and analyses factors enabling or challenging the integration of participative approaches in urban planning practices across 4 case studies serving at this stage as ‘Observatories’
WP4 – Managment Toolbox
WP4 applies lessons learned in previous WPs to assemble a digital toolbox that facilitates participatory and people-centred methods extracted from experience in four European case studies.
