In the current EU scenario, urban regeneration is a heavily coded practice, involving different stakeholders in a typically complex environment. The need to bring into consideration different aspects that are essential to attain quality urban environments, and the increasing demands of society on such quality standards have resulted in the development of complex and often uncoordinated regulatory frameworks, mechanisms and tools used by different stakeholders, when it comes to incorporating new and relevant objectives to the already complex set of problems that any urban regeneration process needs to address.

An important initial step of the project has been the identification and analysis of the stakeholders related to energy efficient urban regeneration. This challenging task aimed to map, for each of the cities and in relation to their regional and national structures, all relevant agents in relation to legislation and policy, financing, management and implementation of projects.

The analysis has allowed to have a better overview the particular organizational structure in each country, where the public administration has a concrete role on defining laws and regulations, and local entities are closer to the actual planning processes and operations.

vIn the context of the 21st annual “Advance Management European Week ”, which presents good management practices in Basque public and private companies, VISESA organized a workshop on 30th October 2015 in Donostia-San Sebastian, with the goal of discussing new management models for urban regeneration and energy efficiency, and communicating FosterREG project objectives, tasks carried in the first few months, and the process and events that will be developed in the next steps of the project. Around 100 professionals from public and private companies attended to the event, which was held on the auditorium of the School of Architecture (University of the Basque Country).
