We are glad to inform you that the proposal of the Research Group for Urban Development of the University of Antwerp has been accepted for hosting the upcoming AESOP YA Conference in spring 2023.

The five track titles (subject to change) are:

  • Track 1: Upscaling and delivering sustainable transformations. Implementation and governance

  • Track 2: Flows of people and goods: Sustainable and inclusive mobility in cities and territories

  • Track 3: Healthy and resilient cities and territories: Impact and design

  • Track 4: Institutional support and adaptiveness for sustainable transformations

  • Track 5: Action-oriented research to make sustainable transformations happen: Research methods

We are looking forward to collaborate with the Local Organising Committee (LOC) Chris Den Heijer, Stijn Rybels, Nina De Jonghe, Tara Op de Beeck, and Thomas Machiels.

The call for papers will be announced in September and the submission of abstracts will be take place until November 2022. To receive updates on the conference, become an AESOP YA member to get the monthly newsletter.
