Global Research for our Local City

An event to celebrate UN World Cities Day

09.30 – 13.00, 31st October 2019, Scarman, University of Warwick (The lunch and exhibition will run from 1300 - 1400)

Growing cities face multiple challenges relating to economic, environment and social & cultural sustainability. The University of Warwick seeks to support sustainable urban growth by addressing these grand challenges through research. Translating research so that it can be applied to cities, taking in to consideration the unique characteristics of each, and developing new research that reflects the specific challenges of a city can be difficult to achieve. This event will hear from policymakers and civil society about their views on local research priorities and how research can have an impact in Coventry. We will also hear from Warwick researchers showcasing their urban research. The event will be followed by a lunch and exhibition of posters from the postgraduate research community at Warwick.


Following the event there will be a lunch and exhibition of posters from the postgraduate students in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Urban Science and Progress. We are please to also announce that we will feature some posters detailing collaborate research projects supporting Coventry City of Culture 2021. In addition, there will be a limited amount of space for additional posters. Should you wish to display a poster, please get in touch.
