REDIS was a network of cities that was focused on how municipalities can re-shape districts into science quarters.

Science, as well as research and development, are essential for growth and employment throughout Europe. The objective of this network is to contribute to a more effective application of knowledge, creativity and innovation in the cities and thereby to the development of a knowledge-based European economy. REDIS focuses on the interface between scientific promotion and urban development. Itraises the issue of the sustainable development and management of science quarters. Participants will have the opportunity to design together with their local actors a vision of future city development and an action plan to attain this vision. Recommendations and a handbook with guidelines and a good practices will contribute to a better exploitation of potential of knowledge and creativity.

Integrated action plans

An Integrated Action Plan (IAP) is a policy instrument that is produced by Action Planning Networks within a period of 12-14 months after the beginning of their activities. The aim of the IAP is to respond in a concrete way to a urban challenge, which is common to all involved cities. Each partner develops its own IAP, so all plans are unique in terms of local circumstances, territorial coverage and, most of all, the context in which this tool is proposed to be implemented. The creation and validation of this instrument relies in a collective undertaking, designed to strengthen commitment and to increase the prospect of sustainable delivery. In this sense, every partner city must establish a URBACT Local Group (ULG), in order to gather implicated stakeholders to co-create and participate in this process.Thus, the IAP reflects and integrates all ULG members' knowledge and learning from transnational exchange.
