Brief description

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) asked the Cities Institute to undertake a review of its Skills and Knowledge for Sustainable Communities Initiative which was supported jointly by the Homes and Communities Academy (HCA - formally the Academy for Sustainable Communities). The review was designed in collaboration with the Academy and the results were considered by both funding organisations. The Initiative was established to fund independent, high quality, research that linked new thinking, ideas, and knowledge to the development of skills and practice in the sustainable community’s field. The focus was on enhancing the skills and knowledge that are needed to create and maintain better places, now and in the future. The evaluation assessed the achievements and impact of the research, and the effectiveness of the Initiative as a means of organising and enhancing the work.
