EUniverCities Innsbruck meeting: Tackling “Urban Sustainable Development”

From 15 to 17 November 2022, Innsbruck will host the next EUniverCities network meeting. The three-day event tackles the issue of “Urban Sustainable Development” through the lens of city-university cooperation and will, apart from showcasing local best practices, stimulate discussions on challenges and opportunities in different topical clusters of urban sustainable development. 

Contributing to the achievement of the SDGs is an integral part of the EUniverCities network's ambition. The UniverCity's influence on sustainable urban development is manifold and the Innsbruck meeting will particularly focus on the topical clusters of Clean Energy, Sustainable Housing & Communities, Sustainable Mobility & Transportation and Urban Planning.

Through the lens of city-university cooperation and projects from both Innsbruck and the network partners, we will identify and discuss opportunities, challenges, risks and rewards linked to the topic of the meeting. By learning from and with each other, the meeting aims at an increased understanding of how to better structure and develop city-university collaboration in the field of sustainable urban development. A keynote input by Verena Ringler, Director of the Innsbruck-based NGO European Commons & non-profit AGORA European Green Deal, will kick off a programme that includes a mix of plenary formats, workshops, site visits and the traditional marketplace session.

The meeting aims particularly at the following target groups: Sustainability Coordinators within universities and cities; academics, experts and political representatives within the topical clusters; members of university Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) and municipal funding services; as well as students active in sustainability initiatives at their universities.

If you are from one of the network's member tandem and are interested in participating, please consult your local network coordinator for all further details.
