Blue-Green Cities Research Structure

Research Structure and Key Project Milestones

The Blue-Green Cities Research Project was performed as a closely integrated and sequenced set of five Work Packages (WP).

Communication (WP1) was the heart of the project and developed the links within and between other WPs to create a holistic research output.


Research was performed within a space defined by the economic-social-environmental and ecological benefits generated in a Blue-Green City and the Blue (flood) versus Green (no flood) performance of flood risk management infrastructure and spaces. Blue-Green Cities Research Space PDF file icon

The Work Packages ran partially in parallel, with their completions timed to supply their deliverables at the times necessary to meet key milestones. Research methodologies and models were developed in years 1 and 2 (2013-14), and tested and applied through the Demonstration Project (WP5) in Year 3 (2015-6). Project time chart PDF file icon
