Embedded research of the River City process

The project has evaluated and monitored the process of the River City project and its strategy for the River City, a central area on both sides of the river in ​​Gothenburg, Sweden. The project was held in collaboration with the City of Gothenburg.

The project has followed the River City project by mapping actors and networks and by analyzing the dialogue and process as well as the organization and management. Constructive feedback has been given regularly to the project management to evolve and make the process more effective.
