The RELAy project will coordinate an international exchange between researchers with outstanding experience in the field of sustainable human settlements and local leaders, and their multipliers, for exchanging how research results can be best brought to t he local level and serve for improving local policy implementation. A conference in Nanjing, China in November 2005 is planned as the core activity. The conference and its preparation will support the development of mutual understanding between researchers and local actors. It will mainly lead to designing cooperation models that are not only beneficial for researchers and local leaders but first of all for improving urban sustainable development and human settlements. The project will be an element of the EU and UN-HABITAT research initiative in support of sustainable human settlements.
