Articulated as an International Workshop, entitled “Turn towards the river”, the meeting focused the discussion on waterfront re-development as a challenge for a smart, sustainable and inclusive city, and, more specifically, on how each city is dealing with the aim of creating an economically viable, socially equitable, environmentally sustainable and liveable mixed-use city centre for the 21.

On the last day, the entire partnership transferred to Prague for a final internal session dedicated to conclusion remarks, together with the researcher group of Charles University.
