ERC GeoDiverCity International Workshop

ERC GeoDiverCity International Workshop
Theories and models of urbanization
Thursday 12th and Friday 13th October 2017 | Paris, France


The ambition of the meeting is to engage discussion about fundamental questions regarding urban theories and modeling. Invited keynote speeches will be followed each by a roundtable of discussion. Related major results from the ERC will also be presented. The intention of the workshop is to summarize the state of knowledge and prepare an agenda for future research.
