EQUITY AND EFFICIENCY IN THE URBANIZATION PROCESS: A LAND READJUSTMENT EXECUTION MODEL
A equidade e eficiência no processo de urbanização: modelo de execução perequativa
Since February 2012. Financed by FCT
Objectives of the project are: (1) the characterisation and critical analysis of the LP's land readjustment practice in Portugal; (2) to contribute to proposing a more efficient land readjustment execution model to address the problem of the conjugation of interests in the urban development process.

Responsible for Task 6: Project outreach and visibility
Dissemination of the project’s results, scientific work produced and promoting the interaction between the various stakeholders. PERCOM project are planned three components of disclosure:
Publication of Technical Reports
Organization of Workshops
Instruments of visibility (Website and Newsletter)
LAND USE COVER CHANGE IN CONTINENTAL PORTUGAL: CHARACTERIZATION, DRIVING FORCES AND FUTURE SCENARIOS
Alterações de uso e ocupação do solo em Portugal Continental: caracterização, forças motrizes e cenários futuros
Since 2010. Research financed by the Portuguese Foundation for Cience and Technology (FCT).
Objectives of the project are: (1) to provide a reliable and clear picture of the changes that occurred in land use and land cover (LULC) in Continental Portugal, in the decades 1950s, 1970s, 1990s and 2010s; (2) to identify and understand the major driving forces of those changes; (3) to form the main alternative scenarios of LUCC until 2040, using a spatial model; and (4) to use all this LUCC information to study energy demand and Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions and removals. We've designed the research plan for LANDYN according to these four objectives, each correspondent to a project task. All of our study will be performed at two scales: Continental Portugal and regions (NUTS 2).

URBAN RIVER BASIN ENHANCEMENT METHODS
2002-2005. Led by Hr Wallingford. Funded by the EC under the 5th Framework
The overall objective of URBEM was to provide a comprehensive framework to facilitate urban watercourse rehabilitation that takes into account the regional variations in modification and use of watercourses across Europe.
Work package 4: Aesthetic evaluation
Led by Instituto Superior Tecnico
The objective of this work package is to develop an evaluation methodology to classify the aesthetic quality of urban watercourses and their surroundings.
