Research is a fundamental part of TUC. All research is based on the understanding that we do not do “research on” but “research with” local actors and communities.

Different types of publications provide the project results not only to researchers, but also to policymakers, urban actors and the general public.

The TUC Toolbox provides a set of concrete tools to help urban actors steer their cities’ trajectories towards just and zero-carbon futures. TUC tools can be methods, interactive instruments, games, written documents or templates and other forms of support proven useful.

The TUC Community of Transformation (CoT) is a collaborative and flexible mechanism that operates across the project’s work packages. The first priority of the CoT is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience among stakeholders regarding collaborative and inclusive pathways towards decarbonization.
