Joining forces! Science-policy integration for urban development in post-2020

October 11, 2018 from 16:30 to 18:00

The EU approach towards sustainable urban development promotes better knowledge for better policy. In addition, novel frameworks in EU R&I policy have been put in place towards more sustainable, resilient and liveable urban developments. However, there are many implementation issues on how to foster the science-policy nexus for urban development.
Do you want to know how Amsterdam is working to match research questions of researchers with societal needs and questions of civil servants? What intervention model has been developed in Maribor to strengthen capacity-building and sustainable city management for inclusive and circular community? How Brno is addressing the issue of territorial integration within the metropolitan area? What can we learn from the Open Lab for social innovation promoted by the city of Reggio Emilia?
Join us and engage in lively discussions with researchers, policymakers and EC officers.
With this workshop, the Joint Research Centre in collaboration with JPI Urban Europe and DG RTD aims to collect possible solutions and develop fresh perspectives for the post-2020 urban integrated approach.
