As part of its preparations for Horizon 2020 (the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020), the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research and Innovation organized a one day stakeholder seminar entitled “Sustainable Urban Dynamics.”

The workshop took place on 28 March 2013 on the premises of MIUR (Italian Ministry of Education,

The purpose of the brainstorming workshop was to identify potential research subjects to be covered under the Societal Challenge 6 – Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies, under the item 6.1.4: ‘The promotion of sustainable and inclusive environments through innovative spatial and urban planning and design.’
