Oxford City Futures Spring Symposium 2017
This event is running from 04 May 2017 until 05 May 2017
Focusing on sub-national economic development and Britain’s new industrial strategy, this symposium brings together invited delegates from policy and research communities to share insights from the ESRC-led Urban Transformations programme, and to set an agenda for policy-engaged, future-facing urban research.
The ICC’s Head of Research Kerry Wilson has been invited to participate in the symposium, led by the Urban Transformations team based at the University of Oxford’s Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS).
Research ‘on’ and ‘in’ cities has never shown greater interdisciplinary potential, not always realised in the conventional architecture of the UK’s discipline-oriented research council funding structures. The Oxford City Futures symposium will begin to address the emergent agenda of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund and new research and innovation ecosystems.Add to Google Calendar
