IMPETUS (IMproving local PoliciEs on Temporary UseS) is an Interreg Europe funded project with the objective of improving local policies by incorporating temporary uses for abandoned or underused spaces into sustainable urban development strategies. Its approach is based on the identification and exchange of knowledge and good practices between local and regional authorities and development agencies that are part of the partnership, in order to improve the policies identified by each of them.
LAMA brings to the project the experience developed in the field of urban policies concerning temporary uses in urban regeneration, advising the other partners, defining the methodology and supervising the analysis and transfer of good practices, with a particularly active role during the Interregional Policy Brokerage (IPB) workshops. It also leads and coordinates the project’s communication activities, taking care of the communication channels (website, social networks, newsletter) and disseminating results and good practices.
