2019年10月16日 / Travelling Conference on Urban Transformations in Industrial Regions, Osaka November 18-19.

flyer
Travelling Conferences (TCs) are a format designed to promote and foster international exchange about specific current issues. More specifically, given the significant interest in questions of current urban trans- formation and comparable challenges in many metropolitan regions around the world (e.g. post-industrial transformation, demographic change, urban strategies of climate change mitigation and adaptation, wa- terfront development) as well as an interest in the ways in which policies, strategies, blueprints for such transformations are exchanged globally (e.g. research on policy diffusion, policy mobility, travelling con- cepts), this series of TCs aims to combine a theoretical and conceptual approach along with an empirical section on selected current policies. To accomplish this goal, a number of presentations will be given at each conference, supplemented by panel and round-table discussions.
The thematically and structurally similar events will take place in Osaka, Ulsan, Essen and Cincinnati be- tween October 2019 and September 2020. Representatives of the Ruhr region and the University Alliance Ruhr in Germany, which organize the conference series, will be travelling to all four locations accompa- nied by members from institutions in the partner regions.
