The first phase of INNOVCITIES which ran from 2015 to 2017 has been formally completed. This phase focused on understanding processes of institutional innovation, and it’s effects for achieving adaptable urban governance systems. It was funded by the European Commission through a Marie-Sklodowska Curie Action Fellowship.
This work now directly feeds into the second phase of INNOVCITIES (2018 to 2019). This will focus on the role of institutions in realizing equity and justice in cities under climate change. It is conducted in collaboration between the Open University of The Netherlands and The Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) at the Vrije University Amsterdam.
A public project summary from the first phase of the project is now available here as pdf. It is a summary of the full report to the European Commission.
