4 The Team of Tor Vergata University The main objective of the RE Block project is to achieve, in the areas of the partners involved, the local action plans. These plans are made through a participatory and inclusive of local actors. Local actors are a ULSG (URBACT Local Support Group: URBACT Local Action Group), in order to carry out this The project is coordinated locally by an URBACT validated Thematic Expert by EU (Dr. Ing Pietro Elisei Tor Vergata University ) supported by the scientific coordination of work operated by Professor Maria Prezioso (University Tor Vergata). The local action group plan is of coordinated a strategic by Dr. nature. Riccardo Troisi (economist and expert in the conversion ecological and social systems of the local economy), with the technical assistance of Dr. Adriana Goni Mazzitelli (anthropologist PhD in Urban Policy, and expert in intercultural and participatory design). Communication is curated by Dr. Ing Angela D' Orazio (researcher in territorial development policies, University of Tor Vergata). LEAD EXPERT Ágnes Böhönyey, the selected Lead Expert of RE Block, has significant working experience in the theme of integrated development of deprived areas and areas at risk of deprivation as well as relevant thematic expertise in URBACT projects. Moreover, as the Head of Department of the National Managing Authority for the Regional Development Operational Programme she was heavily involved in the programming and design of urban rehabilitation programmes and their implementation, following the URBACT II initiative principles. A series of international meetings will help the local action groups to come into contact with other partners in Europe where they face similar problems with the same methodology. The comparison with international experts (knowledge ambassadors) from the different partner countries can expand their horizons and perspectives in the design of solutions for local development. The local action plan, of high strategic value, resulted from this participatory process, will identify a set of projects and define their priority. These projects should have a high degree of maturity, in other words, must be shared by institutions and local actors and to be associated with a clear path to financing funds (EU, national, regional, local).
