11. European Week of Regions and Cities - OPEN DAYS 2013

11th Open Days: European Week of Regions and Cities starts – iSPACE hosts local event in Salzburg

From October 7th-10th the 11th European Week of Regions and Cities (Open Days) takes place in Brussels and consists of an opening session followed by some 101 working sessions (workshops or debates). There will also be an exhibition route showcasing urban solutions and a media programme. The Research Studio iSPACE has been invited as an expert in the workshop “Across and within borders – regional solutions for spatial challenges in urban-rural areas: Acting together for greater urban-rural cohesion”, taking place on the 9th of October. In this workshop representatives from 11 European countries will discuss i.a. about urban-rural cooperation, strategic planning, suburbanisation and urban sprawl in an European context.

As invited speaker to the European Week of Regions and Cities iSPACE will introduce best practice examples from former EU-projects (e.g. “EULE”) and present part of its research issues on sustainable cross-border spatial planning, GIS-aided spatial analysis and the challenges related to Salzburg’s unique location as a trans-border hub.

Related to this EU-event, iSPACE will also host a local event on the 24th of October in Salzburg. At this local event iSPACE will present the MORECO mobility and residential cost calculators for spatial planners and private households. In addition external experts are invited to discuss about challenges and options in the context of spatial- and regional-planning and cooperation in the region of Flachgau, a rural area but still close to the city of Salzburg. The target group of this event are spatial planners, regional planners and political decision makers but also GIS experts and researchers in the field of geo-informatics.
