PERIURBAN envolved a multidisciplinar team of three Lisbon Universities (Instituto Superior Técnico, Instituto Superior de Agronomia from Lisbon University and ISCTE-IUL) and allowed: i) the identification of a typology of periurban territories in Lisbon Metropolitan Area (LMA); ii) case studies of representative territories identified in i; iii) scenario design of each periurban area; iv) quantification of the sustainability of diferente types of periurban areas of LMA. The originality of PERIURBAN is related with its object considering the absence of these territories in research so far but also to team multidisciplinar nature and the adoption of participated methodologies that envolved a significant and diverse of stakeholders of LMA during all the steps of the project. This aspect allowed the development of transdisciplinar knowledge and its tranference to the selected territories envisaging their governance and sustainability.
