On Tuesday June 30th, a workshop was held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in order to publicly launch the beta version of the ECODISTR-ICT decision support tool.

Several local stakeholders gathered, with the mutual goal to collaborate on a sustainable future for the Rubroek district in Rotterdam.
The stakeholders comprised multiple departments of the city administration, the housing cooperation Havensteder, as well as the utility grid operator and not-for-profit organization Buurtlab with strong connections to local inhabitants.
In an interactive workshop, the ECODISTR-ICT decision support tool and the first calculated results for the case study location were presented. The demonstration caused a lively discussion on how the tool can benefit and be integrated into an actual collaborative urban retrofitting process.

Hence, the first demonstration of the ECODISTR-ICT decision support tool can be seen as a great success. A large number of useful feedback has been collected during the workshop thanks to the stakeholders that participated. The ECODISTR-ICT consortium is looking forward to the second meeting of the case study group in September.
