Project Logs

Project logs allow researchers, practitioners and others to post a record of their projects – whether completed or still in-progress – so that others can find out more about their work and findings.

Draft Project logs

We have currently drafted three Project logs. These draw on EU funded co-operation projects. UK partners are involved in many such projects but the planning knowledge from these is not always widely known.

The intention with the Project logs is to cover all types of projects – from academic research to practitioner-led activities, and whatever their source of funding – that generate knowledge that is potentially useful for policy and/or practice. We also welcome contributions for further Project logs (see below for details on submitting a project log).

Comments and feedback welcomed

The Project logs are still in development, and we would welcome your views on the content and format of the drafts available so far.

To record your views and tell us what you think, please fill out this online survey. The survey should take 10 minutes to complete.

Alternatively, please email research@rtpi.org.uk with your thoughts and suggestions.

Submitting a Project log

The Project log template can be found here. Please complete and return a project log if you would like to add to the database of project logs.

A draft guidance note for those interested in submitting a Project log can be found here.

Why do this?

A central repository for researchers and practitioners to share information about their projects, especially for planning policymaker and practitioner audiences, currently does not exist. Whilst projects funded through research councils and other organisations such as the EU typically require researchers to disseminate their results, this activity is often under-funded or under-recognised. In particular projects may not be specifically planning related yet can have valuable experience that planners can benefit from.

Who is involved?

The Project logs have been developed and drafted by two current and one former member of the RTPI International Committee – Christabel Myers, Jo Talbot and Samer Bagaeen (the latter at the University of Brighton Planning School). It has been prompted by a desire to see the knowledge and experience gained by UK partners in EU funded transnational projects such as INTERREG and URBACT, more widely shared and applied to planning policy, practice and education.
