Good Infrastructure for Regional Transformation and Industrial development

 New Giron is an EU funded research and development for a sustainable society with specific focus on social transformation in Kiruna. The project focuses on infrastructure and buildings, where tanks a good life, sustainable growth and attractive living environments are included.

In the process of urban regeneration has Kiruna a vision to create a new urban pattern similar to the city's founder Hjalmar Lundbohm. New Giron has that intention, together with the municipality and its residents to develop solutions which environmentally friendly technologies integrate with social processes for new buildings and infrastructure. Together we create a sustainable town where residents thrive and the industry has an opportunity to thrive.

The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration between six research at Luleå University of Technology, Architecture, Construction Management, Energy, Industrial Work Environment, The City's water / wastewater technology and wood construction.
