Call for Papers: EURA Conference Urban Europe - Challenges to Meet the Urban Future

Vienna, AustriaDEADLINE: 17.03.2012
EURA European Urban Research Association
Vienna University of Technology
Urban Europe - Challenges to Meet the Urban Future
is the topic of the next conference of the EURA European Urban Research Association organized by the Department of Spatial Development, Infrastructure and Environmental Planning, Vienna University of Technology.

Cities are both drivers of economic, technological and organisational development and the places of remarkable social change. The Conference Urban Europe - Challenges to Meet the Urban Future reflects the actual urban situations and the main challenges and outlines outcomes and solutions.
The EU for long downplayed the role of cities in Europe for its economic, cultural and social relevance. With the program Europe 2020, the EU for the first time officially devoted its attention to cities. The Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) “Urban Europe” has a clear focus on urban areas as key elements for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. However, this program has been technologically dominated so far and needs a more interdisciplinary approach from the broad field of social science.
