Towards Adaptive, Climate Neutral and Resilient Historic Urban Districts

In response to the global need to address the resilience and sustainable reconstruction of historic areas to cope with climate change and natural disasters, an R&I European Task Force has been established by the Horizon 2020 projects ARCH, HYPERION, and SHELTER. The vision of this task force is to bridge the gap between urban development, resilience planning and heritage management to boost collaboration among all involved stakeholders and make our cities more climate neutral and resilient. Its vision is to stimulate and promote the development and wider adoption of solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation in historic urban districts. It will promote constructive dialogue, development, and exchange of best practices for achieving better integration between resilient urban planning and heritage management.

After this introduction, there will be a specific focus on the SHELTER project, showcasing the challenges that have been faced, the digital tools developed and the best practices in terms of governance and case studies.

The speakers of the roundtable will be:

  1. Aitziber Egusquiza Ortega, SHELTER Project Coordinator, TECNALIA

  2. Claudio Rossi, Program Manager at LINKS Foundation

  3. Edoardo Patti, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Control and Computer Engineering, POLITO

  4. Louis Durrant, Postdoctoral Researcher, LEMA Research Group, University of Liege

  5. Eleonora Melandri, Member of the coordination team of the Ravenna Open Lab, University of Bologna

The roundtable will be held in Sala Gigli at Castello del Valentino, on the 06th at 3 PM.
