This proposal aims at a multisite Initial Training Network that addresses two issues: the contribution that city redevelopment gives to the European economy competitiveness; the intricacy and multidisciplinarity of the management of redevelopment processes, as well as their long term social and environmental impacts. Training in this field is provided by a huge variety of schools. Instead, skill assessments pointed out the need of an integrated approach, and of mixing "soft" and "hard" capacities, leadership and technical competences. The research and training programs aim at educating young researchers to this mix of skills and competences, in order to improve their awareness of the redevelopment process.
