Research Work Plan

The project will last 21/2 years (from 1/2/02 to 31/7/04). It has fourteen work packages that combine in the following manner.

Work Package 1 is the project management that continues throughout the life of the project.

Work Package 2 draws up a conceptual framework that provides the theoretical underpinning for the research. It explores key concepts (sustainability, leadership, participation), and ensures that the theoretical work is informed by practice.

Work Package 3 uses the material generated from Work Package 2, and produces the research design for use by the case study teams.

Work Packages 2 and 3 ensure a consistent approach across the case study teams. The overall relationships between the work packages are as follows.

The case study teams will use the conceptual framework and research design to conduct the 9 country case studies (Work Packages 4-12). The purpose of the case studies is to generate comparable data which can be used in the following work package (Work Package 13, comparative conclusions). The comparative conclusions work package will identify effective combinations of urban leadership and community involvement and produce context sensitive tools for use by policy makers to measure and effect sustainable urban governance. Work Package 14 ensures a broad awareness and dialogue about the research findings, and will inform policy makers at all levels of government.

The country case studies are led by the academic institutions in the country concerned. The leadership of the other work packages is as follows:

Work Packages 1 and 14 University of the West of England, Bristol

Work Package 2 Darmstadt University of Technology

Work Package 3 University of Twente

Work Package 13 Panteion University of Athens
