Regeneration of European sites in cities and urban environments

Objective

Natural resources are finite. The huge amount of derelict land in the EU and its accession states represents a hitherto under exploited resource. Future urban development in industrial areas has to take place on brownfield sites to be sustainable. Based on the specific expertise of its partners and the long years of experience in the participating regions of the North East (UK), Nord-Pas de Calais (F), the Ruhr and the South of Leipzig (D), and the Montréal Conurbation (CAN), RESCUE examines the current State-of-The-Art, distils best practice approaches at reduced costs, and integrates its results into a holistic system approach for brownfield regeneration. RESCUE contributes to the implementation of European and regional policy and programmes and will offer criteria to support future funding decisions. RESCUE will set up specific internet based training facilities to raise standards and awareness in brownfield regeneration.
