UKRO has highlighted an EC workshop on Innovative Spatial and Urban Planning and Design which will take place in Rome on 28th March, 2013. The purpose will be to identify potential research subjects on innovative spatial and urban planning and design in preparation for forthcoming calls in Horizon 2020. Calls on this topic will feature under the item: “The promotion of sustainable and inclusive environments through innovative spatial and urban planning and design” as part of the Inclusive, Innovative and Secure Societies strand.
Numbers are likely to be limited to 30 for the workshop itself, but the EC has indicated it will publish the results online. For information on how to express interest in joining the debate, you should consult the UKRO article (subscription is available for all University staff). Northumbria staff should contact Research Funding Managers within RBS if you’re interested in this agenda.
