Brief project summary

REMOURBAN aims to develop and validate a sustainable urban regeneration model through large scale interventions in three lighthouse cities - Valladolid in Spain, Nottingham in UK and Tepebasi/Eskisehir, Turkey – which will be a reference in Europe with respect to urban planning and environmental regeneration.

Short activity description

REMOURBAN will: address the detailed design of all of the interventions in the cities of Valladolid, Nottingham and Eskisehir; supervise the implementation and commissioning of all measures; deploy a monitoring and reporting period and analyse all of the necessary variables for assessing the impact in the major indicators in an integrated way. It is already predesigned and a preliminary holistic intervention plan is going to be detailed.

Achieved impact

Valladolid is a city located in the North-Central Spain, with a population of 309,714.


Nottingham, one of the major cities in East Midlands, is situated 209 km north of London and has an offical population of 305,750. The wider city urban area has a population of 729,977.


The City of Eskişehir lies to the south of the capital Ankara in the north-west of Turkey, with a population of around 800,000.


The global evaluation of the effects of the urban regeneration model will be evaluated using both sustainability and smartness indicators, which will be defined inside the project.

Is this project a best practice? Why?

Sustainability should integrate the environmental, economic and social dimensions within the same approach. Smartness should include these dimensions from a forward-looking approach considering issues as awareness, flexibility, transformability, etc. In both cases, methodology for defining and building integrated indicators should consider a complete set of relevant indicators that will be classified according to various categories to cover how the city functions.


This project has been selected as one of the three “lighthouse projects” in Smart Cities by the EC, in the program H2020.
