The aim of the conference is to bring together current research on differentiation in urban and regional development and the resulting political requirements in the context of demographic change. The conference offers PhD students and senior researchers a platform to present the status of their theoretical and empirical research. Political decision-makers, representatives from administration, and NGOs are invited to report on the political challenges of increasing diversity in spatial development and to discuss possible strategies for action with the scientific community.
The key issues of the conference will be considered from three perspectives:
a comparative international, and especially European perspective,
a sectoral perspective on effects of demographic change (effects on housing, technical infrastructure systems, the educational system, public expenditures, etc.),
a planning and policy perspective in the context of regional and local governance and strategy development.
On request, the organizers support PhD students from abroad (firstname.lastname@example.org). Conference languages are English and German. During the conference, it is possible to present posters on the topic of the event. Further information can be found on the conference website.
