Abstract

The multi-disciplinary SURegen project is aiming to develop a digital decision support aid that will capture good practice in sustainable urban regeneration (SUR) and support regeneration training and education for practitioners. It will achieve this through the modelling of the regeneration process, the identification of key decision points and the simulation of various decision outcomes. This paper will outline the research methodology that is planned for the project as a whole and for the technical development of the digital support aid, the Regeneration Simulator Workbench or RSW, and provide justification for these approaches within the context of antecedent research projects. Based upon the experiences of these previous projects, the paper will also present some of the difficulties that can be anticipated when conducting multi-disciplinary research.
