1: To develop the concepts of “system” and “service” as standard integrators of diversity and compatibility of PS common or collective uses (JG&BS2013), be them temporary, permanent, incidental, optional or necessary.Research’s strategy and methodology will address the PS production process, their uses and values in different times, including stakeholders and user’s perspectives. A general reference survey will cover steps for the evaluation’s “framework” of PS
2: To clarify relation of this with other urban systems to expand optimization and adaptability options (compatible mobility, social and environmental cohesion, attractiveness, identification and co’ownership).
3: To develop a framework for PS cost and benefit rational, that includes a multi-dimensional perspective (morphologic, aesthetic, functional, infrastructural, technologic, social, economic, symbolic and cultural).
a) Production process of urban space – services identification discussed with stakeholders;Team ensures interdisciplinary experience on PS issues. The two central team components, in Lisbon (IST-C Eris) and Barcelona (C RPolis) have previous research joint experience (funded by MEC , Spain). Action with official bodies for which PS is
b) Basic definition of PS types (PB2008), focusing on systemic potential value;
c) Tools’ choice: services mapping, system properties, assessment components.
incorporated as a mission topic, while well-placed advisors overlook projected output.
Output project products are directed at professionals and institutional players:
a) C ase studies on value and return performance (4-8 PS systems in Portugal and Barcelona), including a life cycle review assessment;Project’s impact results from construction, demonstration and dissemination of concepts and tools, with systemic service references of social, economic and environmental viability.
b) Production of a recommendations guide (guidelines, procedural relations, governance) and assessment tools for service values of PS.
c) Dissemination: workshops with public targets, conferences participation, application by PhD and master thesis; schools joint exercise; guidelines publication; resource website, final conference.
