EU Research for Sustainable Cities - Raise People Awareness of EU Urban Research

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


In almost every field of science the gap between those who develop new advanced knowledge and make new discoveries and the common understanding of lay people is widening. This is hardly justifiable in those fields whose results have a direct impact on the life of the citizens of tomorrow, as for urban research funded by the European Commission. This publication describes a first experiment of European citizens conference on EU urban sustainability research, the RAISE project. The aim was to raise the awareness of the options available as outcome of several fields of research - urban governance, sustainable transport, sustainable built environment, cultural heritage - and evaluate their acceptability from the citizens "everyday life" perspective.
