JPI Urban Europe @the Open Days
30 October 2012
As part of the annual European Week for Regions and Cities, the Open Days 2012, JPI Urban Europe organised a seminar on Cities of Tomorrow: Urban Futures in a Changing World on the 9th of October. Focusing on cohesion policy, top experts from both Europe and Asia spoke on urban futures. Moderated by Prof. Dr. Wim Hafkamp (Management Board JPI UE), invited speakers discussed current ambitions and challenges facing ‘cities of tomorrow’. During discussions, both speakers and audience members agreed that there is an overall lack of urban data and indicators, making it problematic to create long-term urban strategies and evidence-based policies.
