  2. 2. Empowering Neighbourhoods Through Recourse of Urban Synergies with Trades theme: Regeneration of mixed function neighbourhoods format: Thematic network FP5, “Cultural Heritage and City of Tomorrow” outputs: Guidelines to Practitioners and Policy RecommendationsENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  3. 3. main objectives to assemble knowledge about the state of art in urban regeneration in Europe, to identify successful principles and approaches in promoting and sustaining local partnerships which could form the base and sustain guidelines for practitioners as well as policy recommendations. focussed on local partnerships between authorities, business and residents under two aspects: (a) preconditions and (b) good practice.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme

  7. 7. key principles based on live exchange of practice mixed teams of researchers, urban managers, and administrators roles chosen voluntarily methodology “naturally” evolving, adjusted and recorded during the projectENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  8. 8. concept practitioners and researchers to fully exploit the potential of presence and reciprocity in cross-cultural communication. emergent methodology employed qualitative, communicative, participatory and iterative practices seeking to compose the appropriate investigation design through exploration instead of programming.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  9. 9. methodology: qualitative empirical data, most of which is: subjective and cannot be understood independently of the perspective and interest of the actor or interest group from whose position they are perceived, contextual and cannot be abstracted from locational relevance, and narratives (stories of processes) which cannot be reduced to taxonomies.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  10. 10. methodology: communicative The investigation approach - a process of communication and dialogue: boundaries between raw data and interpretation blurred, key tools: meetings and site visits maximising individual and group interaction, dialogical approach negated traditional role division of researcher and research object, instead stressing reciprocal learning. not merely the management and facilitation of group interaction settings, also appropriate forms of recording and processing the discussions, intermediate results not appropriate for external dissemination.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  11. 11. methodology: iterative importance of iterative processes: route from particular, contextual learning to the transferable message not a straight line, communicative approach - messages going back and forth‘, knowledge generation not a single, unidirectional step, rather a process which involves an interplay between the unique and the general, case studies generated initial thematic categories, which were then referred back to the empirical evidence and refined in a recurrent procedure.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  12. 12. methodology: participatory the network organisational form had to secure acceptance and motivation among members of the partnership: key themes and investigation issues developed jointly and owned by the participants instead of being pre- determined by a project coordinator shaping both research questions and investigation method in advance and independently of the network partners - the principle of participation negates the possibility of a research design and requires an open-ended process.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  13. 13. work process: cross visits cross-visits - meeting in all eight cities for a case study visit without defining the research questions in advance, each city team documented their perceptions of and insights into the case study neighbourhoods > some 50 brief texts. defining and agreeing on research issues: members worked in cross-city groups to derive common research issues from the cross-visits, and to decide on priorities among the research issues.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  14. 14. work process: case studies identifying interests for bilateral learning: returned to the subjective interests of the city teams, supplementing decontextualised issues with situated knowledge interests > operationalising a twinning work process in which bilateral exchanges were to be strengthened. writing ones own case study as a narrative, without a prescribed format. reviewing others´ case studies: the case studies were presented not by the authors of the texts but by reviewers from other ENTRUST cities > reinforced bilateral dialogue and stressed to participants the creative potential of subjective interpretation.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  15. 15. work process: thematic focuses when cases studies finalised, agreeing on thematic focuses: discussed, developed and agreed four cross cutting themes: aims of regeneration involving the private sector community participation mainstreaming and anchoring four editorial teams (two editors in each, with all cities represented), backed up by cross- city teams (all participants included!), were set up to draft a paper on each of the themes.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  16. 16. work process: thematic reports writing thematic analyses in two stages: editorial teams of the thematic papers collated data and analytical interpretations from the experience of each city and derived the key messages, supported by empirical evidence; drafts of these thematic papers were presented and discussed in a plenary meeting, then finalized and approved in a plenary meeting.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  17. 17. work process: final products assembling recommendations and guidelines: members of the cross-city teams met to sort through the recommendations contained in the thematic papers, to select those concerned with policy and those concerned with practice, and to determine priorities in the messages chosen. results of the process reworked by editors into final texts. communicating final products: the summary report, policy recommendations and practitioner guidelines were drafted by the responsible editors; presented in draft form at the final network meeting for feedback, completed for publication and presented at the final public conference.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
  18. 18. lessons of methodology this approach based on the simultaneous interaction of the four practices as described above: enabled the network to work in mixed teams of practitioners and researchers, allowed at the same time to retain particular relevance for the practitioners and to reach general lessons for researchers, requires the partners of the network to accept living with indeterminacy and learn to tackle it, it is the common objectives, mutual confidence and shared values that drive the process further instead of precise pre-determined plans.ENTRUST is a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework RTD Programme and contributing to the implementation of the Key Action 4; “City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" within the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development thematic programme
