The Post-Unlock research, developed and conducted in the context of the Dist Department of Excellence 2018-2022, is rooted in the themes of knowledge of anthropogenic and natural hazards and territorial vulnerabilities but also in the development of integrated policies for climate governance.
The Post-Unlock research was developed and conducted by a large group of R3C researchers – also from other departments of the Polytechnic and the University of Turin – and institutions with the aim of defining, through an interdisciplinary cognitive paradigm, an ideal-typical scenario of innovation in the governance of the city and the territory to 2030, supporting institutions in the challenge of resilience and the circular economy, introducing and testing a model of territorial planning and organization: ‘Local Resilience Units’ (URLs) to promote place-based innovation strategies for the adaptation of territories.
The outcomes of the research are published in the volume (edited by) Brunetta G., Lombardi P., and Voghera A., Post Un-Lock. From territorial vulnerabilities to local resilience, Springer open access, 2022.
