CUTLER (H2020)

CUTLER - Coastal Urban developmenT through the LEnses of Resiliency - is a 36 months long project and supported by a budget about 5 M€ in scope of European Council Horizon 2020 programme under call H2020-SC6-CO-CREATION-2016-2017, starting from January 2018.


CUTLER aims to provide coastal urban development to the water resources environment of the pilot coastal cities in Antalya (Turkey), Thessaloniki, (Greece), Antwerp (Belgium) and City of Cork (Ireland).

The project is executed by 15 partners from 10 countries: Ethniko Kentro Erevnas Kai Technologikis Anaptyxis (Greece), Draxis Environmental S.A. (Greece), Universitaet Koblenz-Landau (Germany), Eurosoc Digital Ggmbh (Germany), Sampas Bilisim Ve Iletisim Sistemleri Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.S. (Turkey), Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium), Oulun Yliopisto (Finland), Democritus University Of Thrace (Greece), Emc Information Systems International (Ireland), Interuniversitair Micro-Electronica Centrum (Belgium), Byrne Looby Partners Water Services Limited (Ireland), Dimos Thessalonikis (Greece), Antalya Metropolitan Municipality (Turkey), Stad Antwerpen (Belgium), Cork County Council (Ireland).

The development of the surrounding area of the water resources, which is a fundamental requirement for every city possessing water element in its nature, will be carried out through polices produced, in such a way that the sensitive balance between economic growth, protection of the environment, safeguarding social cohesion of the city will be carefully taken into consideration. In developing these policies, novel analytical and scientific techniques will be exploited by taking the advantage of big data, unlike the existing intuition-driven approaches.

These policies will be effectively developed tackling the economic and urban development of Thermaikos Bay, Thessaloniki; the transformation of Düden Brook’s environment into a recreation and park area, Antalya; the development of a Storm Water Plan, Antwerp; and the review of the Country Development Plan in the River Lee territory, City of Cork.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 770469.
