The REVIT story.wmv

How many seminars and conferences have you been to watch a play, especially a play about sustainable brownfield site redevelopment? If you had come to the REVIT final conference in April 2007 you would have witnessed an extraordinary event. Project staff, from 4 different countries and 5 partner areas played out respective roles in an hour long “mock up” of a TV show.

The “REVIT Story”, as it became known, aimed to convey the key messages of the project. We did a cut version of the play of about 15 minutes. Enjoy this very unusual way of presentation of project results.

REVIT spin-off: EUBRA

What is happening to REVIT after its project lifetime? Numerous background studies, new findings, best practice examples and guidelines how to apply the new methods in practice were developed during the project. However integrated approaches are still lacking to combine the most outstanding results of different RTD and INTERREG projects.
Therefore the REVIT partners initiated the EUBRA activity. EUBRA aims at bringing together the multifaceted activities related to the topic of "Brownfields" from the several INTERREG co-operation zones. Furthermore new knowledge of the RDT Framework Programmes is included. With regard to the new funding period 2007 – 2013 the main objective of the EUBRA activity is the booklet “EUBRA Agenda” which can support policy makers and programme managers in setting priorities in future national and international funding programmes. It is also meant to serve for potential project applicants as orientation guide in order to clearly determine the fields of action at project level and act as a basis for upcoming projects in order to streamline future activities as well as to avoid duplication of work.

Proceedings and Final Programme of the 2nd International Conference on Managing Urban Land

The Conference took place from 25th – 27th April 2007 in Stuttgart.
With more than 550 participants from Europe, Mexico, Brasil, USA, Asia and Africa as well as 44 Exhibitors the 2nd Conference on managing urban land was a big success. But not only these numbers show that the issue of land regeneration is of growing interest. There was also a strong political aspect on the conference.
