Final Conference DIVERCITIES project (Registration closes 1 December 2016)

17 October 2016

Creating social cohesion, social mobility and economic performance in today’s hyper-diversified cities.

Date: 8-10 February 2017

Place: Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The concluding conference for the EU FP7-funded DIVERCITIES research project will present detailed findings from the study, and how they relate to existing knowledge and practice. The conference programme will comprise a range of formal scientific presentations through interactive workshops led by our researchers. It is designed to create a dialogue between academic researchers, policy-makers and practitioners and to act as a platform for the dissemination of new findings and concepts on the theme of diversity in contemporary European cities. It will consider how urban diversity can positively affect social cohesion, social mobility and economic performance in cities and how the right balance of governance arrangements can be used to tap the full potential of diversity's substantial assets for specific urban groups, for areas within cities, and for cities and metropolitan areas as a whole.

The conference will be held at:
De Doelen
Willem Burger Complex
Kruisplein, 40
Rotterdam, The Netherlands
