SSPCR 2019 specifically wants to support the ‘transposition’ of research into practice and visionary approaches into (planning) policies and tools
, to be applied by local authorities and decision-makers in an urban and regional context. SSPCR 2019 explores the impact of academic research, the scaling-up and replicability opportunities of pilot projects, and the added value of local bottom-up initiatives, in relation to complex challenges posed by the smart city/region approach.
SSPCR 2019’s theme – unfolding in different thematic tracks
which address specific topics – has the objective of providing participants with a comprehensive overview of recent and original work in the field and to build up shared knowledge among researchers, professionals, decision makers and civil society.
