New project announcement:
Urban Retrofit UK

The ISOCARP Institute is thrilled to announce that we will be part of the team working on the project Urban Retrofit UK in partnership with the University of Glasgow and UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE)!

Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (part of UK Research and Innovation), the project will investigate how cities can be planned and ‘retrofitted’ for net-zero living, as well as conduct research on place-based approaches to an environmentally sustainable future, providing evidence to support local and national decision making.

The ISOCARP Institute will support capacity-building and lesson-sharing as part of the international Urban Retrofit Hubs network. These hubs will disseminate the results of the project’s research, including solutions that will bolster place-based resilience and a toolkit designed to close the implementation gap between national policy and local delivery.
