The GUST project starts!

The Governance of Urban Sustainability Transitions or GUST project started in October 2014 and it will run for 3 years until September 2017. The project is funded by Urban Europe, which is a joint programming initiative. Through Urban Europe, member countries can generate European solutions by means of coordinated research. The aim is to create attractive, sustainable and economically viable urban areas, in which European citizens and communities can thrive.

The GUST project brings together leading European research partners and practitioners to investigate urban living labs and enhance their potential for contributing to sustainability transitions. Individual cases have been studied, but limited work has been done to understand how urban living labs work across different national contexts and how we can scale-up their impact or share lessons across European cities.
