Abstract english

This report is produced within the Urban Transition Øresund (UT) project (2011–2014), and it is part of the subtask Collaborative Methods and Tools for Urban Transitions (UT CoMeT). The goal of the UT project is to promote sustainable growth and advance sustainable urban transformation in the Øresund region by gathering municipalities, universities and businesses in cross-border cooperation. The subtask UT CoMeT has a special focus on tools and methods for working that allow and promote greater collaboration between various actors in a transition process towards sustainability.

The initial phase of the UT CoMeT activity consists of mapping existing experiences of forms of collaboration and cross-boundary working formats in urban transition processes. This includes examples of methods and tools utilised within the Øresund region, but also beyond, on international areas, focusing on Europe. The mapping process takes its point of departure in results from earlier reports, and it was completed in two steps: (I) mapping of methods and tools currently used by the UT project partners in the Øresund region; and (II) mapping of international cases and examples in Europe.
