REDIS was a network of cities that was focused on how municipalities can re-shape districts into science quarters.

Science, as well as research and development, are essential for growth and employment throughout Europe. The objective of this network is to contribute to a more effective application of knowledge, creativity and innovation in the cities and thereby to the development of a knowledge-based European economy. REDIS focuses on the interface between scientific promotion and urban development. Itraises the issue of the sustainable development and management of science quarters. Participants will have the opportunity to design together with their local actors a vision of future city development and an action plan to attain this vision. Recommendations and a handbook with guidelines and a good practices will contribute to a better exploitation of potential of knowledge and creativity.

Integrated Action Plans

Within an Action Planning Network, the Integrated Action Plan is a local output, specific to each city. Thus, the local circumstances, as the concrete actions to be carried out in response to the network's sustainable development challenges, are defined by the URBACT Local Group. This core group is composed by a wide range of relevant stakeholders, who have a stake in the addressed challenge and who play an active role in co-designing the plan alongside the project partner. This document is the result of the interplay between the theme, each city's starting point and its individual URBACT journey. It highlights the positive learning experience cities have undertaken, both from a local and a transnational perspective.
