In only 4 weeks the CABERNET 2014 conference will be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
The conference programme illustrates the global importance of reusing derelict, abandoned and underuse land in order to support the wise and perhaps even sustainable future of our cities and covers the social, environmental, economic and political aspects of managing urban land in depth.

For most people the term ‘brownfield’ raises images of derelict factories, abandoned train stations, or closed mines. But brownfields are also sites of opportunities: the empty spaces in the land use puzzle can help us deliver the sort of cities are we trying to create. Increased understanding of how redevelopment affects city systems now means we can make better use of increasingly scarce financial and physical resources.

So we invite you to Frankfurt between 14 – 16 October 2014 for three days of knowledge sharing, mutual inspiration and scientific validation of experiences from around Europe and beyond.

More information on the conference and the call for posters is available at the conference website.


The conference is co-funded by projects within the European Union’s Seventh Programme
for research, technological development and demonstration
