In an initial phase of the AGORA project, UIRS will develop a framework for catalogUing and adopting innovative policy instruments for the redevelopment of derelict, un/underused, vacant, abandoned, and undervalued areas which will be tested in the 10 AGORA cities.
Through 3 training seminars and 3 peer-to-peer and thematic learning missions, AGORA cities will build their capacity to become credible and active key players able to catalyse a critical mass of different interest groups in urban regeneration activities supported by the AGORA Toolkit as a compendium of different types of policy instruments and best-case examples.
Territorial partners will set up cooperative platforms supporting the local development of Regeneration Agendas (T3), action plans, and instruments to be co-developed and tested. The AGORA cooperative platforms will represent “public co-production spaces”,
having a network dimension and a virtual dimension.
With these cooperative platforms, AGORA will generate and consolidate local co-design Communities in each partner territory. Additionally, through the platforms' virtual dimension, AGORA will foster and facilitate the transnational encounter and matchmaking of actors and stakeholders from different locations.
The WP T3 will be the fundamental step towards the conversion of the knowledge created through research and analysis of the 10 AGORA cities into concrete strategies for Public Private-People-led physical and social regeneration. Local AGORA Communities
appropriate their role as key players for local and regional socio-economic development, being actively involved in the co-creation and
further co-implementation of Regeneration Agendas and Action plans.
his analytical work package will help to achieve AGORA’s aims by comparing and analyzing the outcomes of local co-design processes and policies in support of a decentralised governance model of decision-making. It will also draw on the results of the 10 AGORA pilots to draw (and ultimately transfer) valid evidence-based lessons and recommendations.
Eutropian will be responsible for preparing the Communication Strategy that will be central to ensure an effective communication process within the partnership and effective and efficient implementation of the project activities for all Work Packages.
Local Communication Coordinators will be appointed for each of the financing partners, who will be responsible to coordinate with
Eutropian and ensure proper communication at the partner's level regarding the implementation of the activities.
