PhD in Sustainability & Urban Regeneration
The abrupt and persistent period of recession or economic stagnation that affects many countries since 2007 has highlighted the impossibility of maintaining the model of urban expansion of recent years, given the lack of resources, both public and private to finance it.
The look towards the reconsideration of the existing, of the urbanized in the last decades, and the search of efficient ways of recycling of the existing urban areas has become object of a progressive attention for the technicians, the administrators, the citizens, etc. . And the support that urban regeneration interventions can provide scientific research, has become an essential premise to provide it with quality and efficiency.
Urban regeneration in the context of sustainable development has thus become one of the issues that demand greater study, greater dedication, greater production of knowledge to avoid that in the coming decades, where it will undoubtedly be one of the greatest protagonists of urban dynamics, we discover that it has been addressed without the fundamentals and guarantees that the research could have contributed.
