Urban Lunch-time: Seed-projects: Developing new ideas


As a part of Chalmers engagement in Urban Futures, a number of so-called seed-projects have been initiated, financed by Chalmers in-kind contribution. A seed-project can be a pre-study, a pilot study, or an in-depth literature study or similar to test and develop new ideas together with the public partner in Urban Futures. The presentations will give a snapshot of the results of the first 4 seed-projects that have been carried out during 2020.

Register no later than January 25

The ambition is that the seed-projects will form the basis for developing knowledge and collaborations with long-term value for the partners involved and foster a broad engagement among researchers at Chalmers and collaboration with the partners in Urban Futures.
