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.
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.
