Countless great urban initiatives worldwide deserve more attention than they currently receive. Others could benefit from learning about these urban projects.
This is what CLOSER CITIES is all about: an international research initiative with a focus on how to make optimal use of all urban expertise available around the world. We welcome you to be part of this ambitious and exciting journey!
- science-based & pragmatic
- co-created with partners
- non-profit & anyone can take part
On this part of the platform: concrete examples of urban projects, covering a wide range of different areas. They are submitted by researchers, social entrepreneurs, people who work for local government authorities, and so on. It’s a place to find inspiration; perhaps there’s information that could be applied to your own city!
Scientific reflections, interviews, articles. What do scientists think about sharing urban knowledge? What are the factors that stimulate or hinder knowledge-sharing? What is the impact of the local context? Researchers give their opinions on the results of big data analyses of the cases.
