    Senior researcher spatial planning, transitions and urban innovation

Cities, regions and communities worldwide are facing multiple transitions, all requiring scarce space, funding, knowledge and human resources. Emerging technologies such as Mobility as a Service or AI may provide solutions yet may also introduce new challenges. The Urbanism Next Europe conference addresses major societal challenges for urban areas, particularly focusing on the forefront of (technological) innovation in search of concrete action perspectives.

The conference addresses knowledge questions such as:

  • How can cities, regions and community leaders address challenges associated with these emerging technologies and take advantage of the opportunities they present?
  • How should cities, neighborhoods and buildings be redesigned in light of the changes we are seeing?
  • What insights emerge regarding implementations – in terms of opportunities, barriers, use cases, scalability, and uptake?
