Sustainable Urbanisation – bridging development and growth 14.5. – welcome!

The conference ‘Sustainable Urbanisation – bridging development and growth’ brings together the ‘Urbanising Society’ research projects funded within the ‘Strategic Research Programme’ 2016‒2019 hosted by the Academy of Finland. These projects have examined diverse dimensions of recent urbanisation and subsequent impacts on Finland and other countries. The conference increases understanding on the topic and makes research knowledge usable in general decision-making processes and in urban and community planning.

Venue: Aalto University, Main building Dipoli, Auditorium: Lumituuli (address Otakaari 24, Espoo, Finland)
