Short description
UIA Expert, Kinga Korniejenko, gives a first look on how the project is being implemented.

It’s been a year since the Urban Infra Revolution project started its implementation and many activities have been carried out. The project has begun to produce knowledge stemming from the implementation of its innovative solution. 
You can now read the first of a series of journals following the project’s implementation process. In this first edition, find out about the EU, national and local policy. Learn about the following elements: 
•    work on material solutions and basement assumptions for additive technology
•    the difficulties, barriers and challenges linked to the experimental nature of the project
