"POWER HOUSE Divided/Cooperative ownership TaskForce workshop: New investments: opportunities in the new European programming period 2014-2020" - 20 November 2013, Milan, Italy

Cities and Regions are getting ready for the new EU programming period 2014-2020 with the aim of inaugurating a new season of research projects and new models of planning cities: a complex collaboration between the public and private sector, between institutions and communities. New interventions aimed at smart, inclusive, and sustainable cities (with nearly-Zero Energy Buildings and neighbourhoods), should make the most out of synergies and complementarities in order to achieve a multiplicative effect of human resources and catalyse creativity and innovation. This perspective requires Housing Cooperatives creating partnerships in the territory of reference, but also outside, and the activation of the necessary financial resources.

What are the new financing channels, what is the perspective opened by the new 2014-2020 programming at national and international level? What tools are available to fund nZEB projects and Smart Cities? What are the interesting and advanced cases in the international arena? What are the critical factors and elements to develop such a project? Are there European models transferable in our context? What role can the social housing cooperatives play?

This Workshop, organised in the framework of the POWER HOUSE Divided/Cooperative ownership TaskForce, tried to give some answers to the questions above thanks to the help of experts in European funds, policy experts on Social Housing at European level, managing authorities, research institutions and representatives from exemplary projects.
