Conference goal

Working on urban challenges requires cooperation on a multi-stakeholder level. This is what we do as an institute, and was also the primary goal of the conference:

"To share and discuss multidisciplinary insights and inspire each other to take actionable steps towards sustainable urban transformations."

Cities play an essential role in our society. It's where we - with ever-growing numbers - live, work, recreate and care. At the same time, the city is also the place where major transitions (also visibly) occur. Precisely for that reason, our cities set the agenda for the improvement of the liveability and sustainability of the world we live in. They can kick off, accelerate, and embrace urban innovation of mobility, circularity, energy transition, climate adaptation, urban food systems and digitization. With our cities growing, the need for innovative solutions to tackle these challenges is on a rise, and more relevant than ever. The conference 'Reinventing the City' set the stage to spark a dialogue between scientists, policymakers, students, and industry partners from different backgrounds and areas of expertise.

Who attended?

The conference brought together over 600 urban innovators ranging from scientists, policymakers, students to industry partners. We discussed how cities can transform their systems on a metropolitan scale, to become more liveable, resilient, sustainable and offer economic stability. We call this “Reinventing the City" by transforming the system.
