Research is conducted on project SPLACH – Spatial Planning for Change (2017-2021), which aims at contributing to the design of transformative policies, able to guide Portuguese planning practice towards a low carbon and social inclusive urban system.
The project gathers three research centres - CITTA (Univ. Oporto), DINÂMIA-CET (ISCTE-IUL) and GOVCOPP (Univ. Aveiro) and is funded by Compete 2020.
The approach draws mostly on economics of innovation and sociotechnical transitions to sustainability literature.
Previous research was developed on project TESS (2011-2014), funded by FCT, and focused on the Portuguese energy system transition to sustainability.
