The URBAN-EU-CHINA Innovation Platform on Sustainable Urbanisation invites you to join the EU-China Foresight Workshop on Sustainable Urbanisation. This workshop is the fifth in a series of Foresight Workshops organized by UEC, for urban stakeholders to discuss urban trends, challenges and visions and identify what EU and China could achieve by cooperating on sustainable urbanization. For the fifth Foresight Workshop, we are particularly aiming to discuss EU-China cooperation with staff of the various DGs and cabinets of the European Commission, as well as members of our cooperation networks, the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) and Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe (JPI UE). During the 16 September Foresight Workshop, the URBAN-EUCHINA report on EU-China R&I Agenda for 2019-2027 will serve to frame the discussion and will include the workshop’s relevant results. Building upon the results of the BOHEMIA study , the workshop participants will discuss time of realization of expected urban social, economic, technological, environmental changes and identify those more relevant for future EU-China R&I cooperation. The workshop will engage the participants in creative and inspirational conversation leading to wiser and more collectively informed proposals. The participants will work in small, interactive groups where each of them will be asked to speak out and share their knowledge with the others.
