UCL Grand Challenges


Workshops: “In Otto Königsberger’s footsteps – encouraging collaboration between cities and universities”

27 March 2018

Otto Konigsberger's Footsteps

The UCL Grand Challenges of the University College London is inviting participation in workshops that aim to identify and set an agenda for future research in areas where universities and cities  can work together. Faculty members, researchers, students, policy makers, city officials and practitioners are invited to submit rigorous academic or policy or practitioner works on topics related to ‘urban transformation’ that involves, or has the potential for, close collaboration between universities or academic/research institutions and cities. The collaboration is expected to extend beyond data collection to involve aspects such as programme formulation, implementation, impact evaluation and policy framing. The collaboration may involve faculty / researchers/student from universities, and one or multiple stakeholders in cities involved in urban transformation programmes (i.e. Smart Cities Mission, Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation).
