INNOVATION DUBLIN 2011: Project Inaugural Meeting - Transitioning to Urban Resilience and Sustainability (TURaS)

The “TURaS” project aims to bring together urban communities, researchers, local authorities and SMEs to research, develop, demonstrate and disseminate transition strategies and scenarios to enable European cities and their rural interfaces to build vitally-needed resilience in the face of significant sustainability challenges. TURaS is an ambitious and broad reaching project supported by innovative geospatial ICT infrastructure and an interactive technology-enabled approach to underlying communication processes. The impact of these new approaches will be measured and results compared between participating cities before a final set of strategies and tools will be developed for application. Ultimately, TURaS will demonstrate to urban communities, businesses planners, policy-makers and managers how transition strategies may be created and implemented as we strive to move to more sustainable urban living.
