euPOLIS project was presented at the Showcase event organized by the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovations (CSEI) at Imperial College London, led by Dr. Ana Mijic.

Recently, the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovations was holding a yearly Showcase event to present research achievements during the previous year, as well as celebrating their engagement with industry and policy.

The event was also an occasion to hear from thought leaders in the fields relevant to Systems Engineering and Infrastructure and their research agenda. This year, the focus is on the work on sustainability, resilience, and the role of infrastructure in achieving a net-zero target. The event was focused on how climate change adaptation links with the transition to net-zero in the context of infrastructure with a particular focus on what COP26 (Climate Change Conference) might or, indeed, will imply.

As part of the event’s program, one of our experts and Centre’s researchers, Dr. Stanislava Boskovic from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (ICL) presented the euPOLIS methodology, the project’s goals, and the significance of modeling assessments of nature-based solutions infrastructure into urban environments for systemic design and implementation, to the participants of the main event. 

With the euPOLIS being strongly nature-based oriented, this info corner was the opportunity to share the euPOLIS knowledge with other experts, so as to be implemented in any future urban planning decisions in order to adapt and mitigate climate change.
