CABERNET is a multi-disciplinary and multi stakeholder expert network that aims to facilitate new practical solutions for urban brownfields. Its vision is to ‘Enhance rehabilitation of brownfield sites, within the context of sustainable development of European cities by the provision of an intellectual framework for co-ordinated research and development of tools.’
55 members from 21 countries first examined their roles and characterised their involvement in the brownfield development process. The network then focused on integrated issues through 6 working groups: citizen participation, policy and regulation, professional skills, environmental issues, social and cultural issues, and economic issues. Targeted outputs were produced by each working group.
Numerous outputs were produced including: position papers, journal articles, case studies, country profiles, conference papers, conceptual models and brownfield tools. To see these go to www.cabernet.org.uk
