New professionals for better urban design

In our increasingly anthropised planet, many cities are facing multiple societal and environmental challenges. The impact of urban green contexts on people’s health and safety represents an emerging topic and of urgent importance.

GreeNexUS proposes a novel and multidisciplinary approach to promote urban greening, territorial regeneration and accessibility of urban infrastructures, as key strategies to face those challenges. The project implements a collaborative Training-through-Research programme involving universities, research centres, companies, NGOs and local authorities that share this new vision of fostering greener, healthier and safer cities and towns in Europe.

In terms of research, 10 specific and multidisciplinary topics will be addressed by 10 Doctoral Candidates, who are envisaged to spread the GreeNexUS approach beyond the project’s scope and duration, under the guidance of a supervisory group of academic and non-academic experts.
