    This interactive workshop will bring together excellence from several advanced European Smart Cities projects that will put forward their expertise and their project results on integrated planning, energy efficiency and district energy solutions, among others.

    MSc Global Sustainable Cities Brochure

    The Institute for Future Cities (IFC) has published a new brochure for the MSc Global Sustainable Cities.

    As part of the STEP UP project, both the University of Strathclyde and Riga Technical University have developed new Masters programmes which draw on real world experiences and outputs from STEP UP.

    The objective of these Masters programmes is to deliver a growing number of high quality graduates who have the necessary knowledge, skills and capabilities to deliver sustainable city planning in practice in cities around the world. Demand for such graduates is growing and is likely to continue as the requirement of international climate, energy and environmental agreements impact on national, regional and local governments and other organisations.

    Both programmes will start to be delivered in 2015 and will continue to be taught as part of the legacy of the STEP UP project.
