- During November and December, the Bilbao neighbourhood office will become a classroom to prepare professionals in technical and organisational aspects for tackling rehabilitation and urban regeneration projects.
- This course is closely linked to the Opengela programme, as its main objective is to provide transversal and holistic training for the members of the technical and proximity management offices that will in the future deal with all the vulnerable neighbourhoods in the Basque Country.
- The course has 17 places available, for which public administration professionals and people with a university degree can register before 14 October.
The course ‘Management of rehabilitation and urban regeneration’ organised by the IVAP (Basque Institute of Public Administration) will be held at the Otxar Opengela during November and December. During these two months, comprehensive and integrated training will be offered to public administration professionals and university graduates.
Speakers from the IVAP and EVETU (Basque School of Territorial and Urban Studies) will present the keys to achieving a broad knowledge of the technical and organisational role of professionals in this discipline. The aim is to be able to tackle any work related to the rehabilitation of neighbourhoods, at any scale.
Thus, aspects related to the technical planning of proposals will be addressed, as well as the participation of beneficiaries, management processes and financial viability. All this, under the regulatory and administrative frameworks (European, state, regional, local) and applied to all scales where rehabilitation can be developed (neighbourhood, homogeneous building complex, building or group of them).
Ignacio de la Puerta, director of Territorial Planning and Urban Agenda of the Basque Government; and Gerardo Ruiz Palomeque, professor at the School of Architecture of the Polytechnic University of Madrid and expert in rehabilitation and urban regeneration, co-direct this course, which will begin on 2 November in a conference given by both to establish a conceptual framework at European and territorial level.
Professionals from different disciplines, such as law, sociology, architecture, engineering or technical staff, will be responsible for providing students with the knowledge generated by their experiences through a theoretical-practical methodology, where debate and explanations based on real examples will prevail. In this way, the course will cover topics related to urban planning and rehabilitation on a regional and local scale, as well as the technical keys to carry out rehabilitation projects in a comprehensive, interactive and simultaneous manner.
The deadline for registration is 14 October and there are three ways to enrol: on the one hand, Basque Government staff can register by self-registration; on the other, local and regional government staff can register through their training coordinator; and, finally, professionals, graduates and/or graduates should send the completed application form to email@example.com.
This course is closely linked to the Opengela programme, as its main objective is to provide transversal and holistic training for the members of the technical and proximity management offices that will in the future attend to all the vulnerable neighbourhoods in the Basque Country.
