FAID Cities of Tomorrow
March 23, 2021 @ 8:00 am
In the last few months since the first webinar, we have been discussing with many colleagues from both the US and France on opportunities for collaboration and on different aspects regarding the development of cities and the interaction between citizens and technology. Many different topics are emerging that are complex and interrelated, and it seems that there would be great benefits in more interactions between the two sides of the Atlantic.
The Office for Science and Technology proposes to seize this growing momentum and expand the Cities of Tomorrow initiative by launching and supporting a Transatlantic Network for Young Professionals and Researchers involved in topics of urban development. The network would help bring recognition to the role played by promising scholars and professionals working in these fields, provide a space for continued discussions on the future of cities, and also be an opportunity for peers to connect across the Atlantic.
To draw a parallel with the next public webinar, the first edition of the Junior Transatlantic Colloquium will tackle the difficult issue of how to build trust in water governance. This meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 23 at 11am-1pm (EST). This first meeting and the next ones that will cover other topics are open to all PhD students, young researchers or professionals who want to join the network. See details and register at : https://france-science.com/cities-of-tomorrow/.
This first edition will be an opportunity to open the dialogue on a crucial topic but also to get to know each other and prepare further sessions some of which might go deeper into the same subjects or explore other aspects of the future of cities.
