Research & Development Projects

*
EquiCity

EquiCity

The project proposes a digital serious gaming approach for creating a ‘smart polder model’ to support transparent and inclusive decision-making processes in urban planning and management. The ultimate aim of the project is to provide innovative participatory tools to better reach social, economic, and environmental sustainability, especially in historic cities, where cultural heritage and its values is to influence decision-making processes in urban planning and management.
