URBAN MATRIX is a FP6 funded project that successfully set up a knowledge transfer platform to support European cities in learning about projects and policies related to Sustainable Urban Development (SUD).


During the project lifespan, URBAN MATRIX:

 

  • charted cities demands for knowledge on urban sustainability issues via 3 rounds of surveys;
     
  • compiled an e-library of best practices and research case studies by means of standardized templates;
     
  • organised a series of thematic workshops, each focusing on different topics of current concern for European cities; and
     
  • evaluated this project methodology and made recommendations to the European Commission on the design of future EU research funding for Sustainable Urban Development .
