Sustainable planning and environmental assessment

Pianificazione sostenibile e VAS

The research group carries out research, teaching and scientific dissemination activities working on the integration of innovative technologies at multiple scales as well as on environmental assessments.

RESEARCH PROJECTS

The two most recent research projects that can be mentioned, among the others developed, are: Mediterraneo in Rete/Méditerranée en réseau – Me.R”, (European Regional Development Fund – European Cross-border Cooperation Programme, Italy-France “Maritime”) whose aim is the identification of networks of operators in the field of sustainable tourism, renewable energies, biotechnologies, and the SCORE “Sustainable COnstruction in Rural and fragile areas for energy Efficiency” (a MED European Project), whose aim is to support the implementation of sustainable energy policies in the building sector in fragile coastal and rural areas with exceptional landscape values, exploiting eco-innovative potential, using traditional building elements combined with innovative “green” technologies. Since 2004 the group is working with public agencies for the assessment of environmental sustainability at local level. The group is working with Columbia University on a research project regarding the environmental sustainability of urban areas and the role of green infrastructure.

PUBLICATIONS

Group members authored several monographs and journal papers in the field of eco-design, in environmental sustainability for territorial planning, in the integration of green infrastructure in urban areas, and in sustainable tourism.

TEACHING ACTIVITIES AND SCIENTIFIC COMMUNICATION

Professors and researchers of the group carry out teaching activities on sustainable planning in University courses, in Italy and abroad. They teach also in several post-graduation courses. Results of the research works have been presented in national and international conferences.
