Ausschreibungsschwerpunkte

Topic 1. Urban diversity and social cohesion
 

  • Improve the understanding of processes of segregation/integration across groups divided by age, ethnicity, health, wealth, and language, and which actions promote increased integration for the most critical chasms.
  • Better understand how diversity can be a strengthening aspect of society and under what circumstances such societal benefits best flourish.
  • Find new and improved methods how to integrate citizens in the public decision making process, activate marginalised groups in societal actions, and spread the sense of being part of society. 
  • Foster social-oriented innovation by investigating the conditions and restrictions driving user acceptance of new technologies/products/solutions and their consequences for new urban governance

 

Topic 2. Urban systems and networks
Specific project goals could be defined as to fit within one or more of these broad guidelines;

  • Advance the development of a select system or network, its integration with society and legacy systems, and its suitability and acceptability for some select user group
  • Improve the way an existing system, network or service is managed, monitored, and integrated with user groups, public bodies and private enterprise
  • Improve the coordination of multiple systems and networks in order to obtain higher efficiencies, lower external effects and/or higher reliability, e.g. for the movement of people and goods in and between cities, in a way that takes long term effects in demand and land use into account.
