UHasselt (Hasselt University)



Role in the SUN project

UHasselt is one of the four academic partners involved in the second action. The objective of this action is to offer an academic platform that supports the other actions (economy, greenery, insulation and social coherence).  Concretely, UHasselt provides expertise concerning sustainability measures at the microeconomic and macroeconomic level. Through dynamic interaction with the other academic partners and actions, this know-how is implemented in the defining of sustainability of urban neighbourhoods, the literature review of already existing sustainability measures and policy implications, and the development of sustainability measures and policy recommendations suitable for the concerned regions.
