UFO: Collaborative Workshop on Urban Development in Rio, Brazil

From 5th to 7th May, a delegation of the UFO research project organized a workshop in collaboration with researchers from the Brasilian project „Engenaria Urbana“ in Rio de Janeiro. Titled  "Urban Future Outline: designing solutions for sustainability and resilience of tomorrow’s cities", the workshop provided an opportunity to present the projects, discuss new and joint research approaches and gain firsthand insights into the research of our Brasilian colleagues. After first contacts had been established in January 2014, the workshop has been a further step towards a sustainable cooperation between the RWTH Aachen University and the Universities PEU/POLI/UFRJ Rio in the field of urbanity.
