CLEVER Cities - Co-designing Locally tailored Ecological solutions for Value added, socially inclusivE Regeneration in Cities


Guiding framework for CLEVER activities

D1.1 Guiding framework for CLEVER activities, including guidance on stakeholder mapping, designing urban living labs, and utilizing EU data platforms and priority areas for CLEVER Cities (M6) An iterative and collaborative process will develop a CLEVER Cities Guidance which meets the needs of the identified target groups: a first draft guidance (v.0) will be developed by ECOL in close collaboration with the Thematic Experts, based on a synthesis of the city-relevant WP methods tested in CLEVER Cities. This draft will be presented, discussed and validated at a joint FR/FE 2-day stakeholder workshop in M40 with ca. 50 participants to inform its further development

Analysis report on global, EU, national policy

D1.2 Analysis report on global, EU, national policy framework and barriers and opportunities for FR/FE (M10) Based on the priority areas of sustainable (urban) development, a set of EU and global policies and relevant national and regional policies will be identified and analysed by ECOL and FR/FE (using a common template). Findings will be validated via an e-consultation process by the AB and local partners (to be turned into policy briefs in WP7). Gaps and opportunities for action will be compiled in a brief report by M12.

Market analysis report

D51 Market analysis report M26Market analysis will include an analysis of the market forces such as threat of new entrants and substitutes bargaining power of buyers and suppliers as well as industry competition as well as a mapping of other relevant factors and interest groups influencing the relevant market such as public regulation It will also analyse the specific structures of competition as a basis for strategies in accordance to the business environment The outcome will be a short report for each CLEVER solution analysed providing a blueprint for market strategy development

Report on business, financing and governance models

D53 Report on business financing and governance models M 24Report will summarise the developed business governance financing and investment models for the CLEVER solutions that can ultimately deliver the replication or take up of these solutions in other European cities Bankability and feasibility of financing mechanisms will be ensured in order to support cities in applying the CLEVER solutions

Exploitation strategy/ plan

D7.4 Exploitation strategy and plan (M14) This document will address the positioning in respect to similar NBS initiatives, the description of promising results and parameters to evaluate exploitation potential and recommendations to promote result adoption and exploitation and illustrate the conditions for sustainability. A list of scientific articles/reports will be added. It will link up to WP8’s preliminary exploitation agreement in M12 at the 1st ACA and feed into the final exploitation agreement in M58.

CAL specific co-implementation plan

D2.3 CAL specific co-implementation plan (M15) PEA/GW, ELI/WWFO and STEG will facilitate the CALs development of place-specific co-implementation plans outlining the operational arrangements for realising the Stimuli in phases (construction, inauguration, long-term operation and maintenance), with roles and responsibilities, financing, timelines and methods (M15).

Co-creation plan and co-design of solution (CAL)

D2.2 Co-creation plan and co-design of solution (CAL) (M12) At the 1st ACA, CALs will present prepare both, co-creation plans and co-designed solutions to prepare implementation of a CLEVER Stimulus.

CLEVER Monitoring and Evaluation Framework

D4.1 CLEVER Monitoring and Evaluation Framework (M6) By M6 the ‘CLEVER Monitor’ will establish a robust overarching and integrated monitoring and assessment framework tailored to CLEVER Cities. A first step will be identify gaps of provided criteria, indicators and guidance for measuring the challenges to urban regeneration addressed by CLEVER Cities. Based on this, a tailor-made CLEVER Monitor will be established and ensure it supports the local co-monitoring strategies and effectively assess the impacts of CAL against the four key urban regeneration challenges within and beyond the project’s lifetime (T4.4).

Monitoring Strategy in the FR interventions

D4.3 Monitoring Strategy in the FR interventions (M12) Agreement on objectives (rather qualitative) and targets (quantified) in UIP to provide a ‘distance to target’-benchmark for co-monitoring and determine methods for data collection and measuring (incl. sensoring, statistics, narratives and stories, surveys, visual material, etc.) to be used in local monitoring strategy.

Urban Innovation Partnerships (UIPs) launched

D2.1 Urban Innovation Partnerships (UIPs) launched (M6) In close collaboration with T1.1, guidance on stakeholder mapping, each FR (by M3) will identify, map and invite district-level stakeholders to be involved in the UIP (incl. local citizens, civil society organisations, businesses, academia, (landscape) planners and architects, representatives of relevant public administrations (e.g. health, security & police, environment, urban planning).

Visual identity

D7.1 Visual identity (logo, templates and branding guidelines) (M4) A project logo, branding guidelines for CLEVER Solutions, Word and Power Point templates will be developed to provide an authoritative and recognisable visual identity (M4). Adverts, brochures, posters, newsletters, infographics, 1 promotional video, 1 general presentation and 1 press pack will be produced and distributed at events as well as at external stakeholder events. ICLEI ES will provide summary documents on outcomes from T4.4 and T.4.5 for T2.4 workshops.


D7.3 Website (M6) A professionally designed project website will act as the main online window for the project, presenting background information, objectives, partners, news, events, activities, key outcomes, resources and tools, as well as downloadable documents such as the Guidance for applying CLEVER Solution. Transitions Academy webinars may also be webcasted through the website. ICLEI ES will also set up digital media channels through social networks.
