  • Sustainable Recovery? Rebalancing, Growth, and the Space Economy.
    27 November 2014 - 28 November 2014, Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury,London, UK - London (United Kingdom)

    Description: This conference provides a platform on which to address the new economic order and its spatial manifestations. The world has seen a series of shifts in socio-economic relations over the past decade, which has picked up pace since the global financial crisis of 2008, particularly in relation to the complex inter-related processes of industrialisation, urbanisation, and regional and local development. Is the mediation between economic logic and political institutions leading to new patterns of economic activity at a local, regional, national and global level?

    The 21st Century has been an era of devolution, predicated on ‘realising’ place-based assets and assembling these as the building-blocks of agglomeration for a new brand of local and regional economic development. On the one hand, political devolution has happened through constitutional change (see Spain and current events in Scotland), and on the other hand, economic devolution has occurred through the explosion of state rescaling. City-regions are the outlet for some of this thinking. In the context of urban and regional austerity, post-crisis, politicians and policy-makers argue this is a more ‘balanced’ approach to growth than past interventions. Crisis in the Eurozone though is having highly differentiated impacts, with some places benefiting, while others have seen a worsening of problems. These outcomes appear complex, and relatively unpredictable, challenging prevailing narratives of places and their future. This begs the question as to whether recovery is sustainable and/or is spatially selective growth occurring at a cost?

    This Regional Studies Association Winter Conference 2014 presents a timely opportunity to discuss these issues, to establish the need and nature of future research imperatives, and to address the concerns and challenges confronting policymakers and practitioners. The conference organisers are keen to attract papers and sessions which address a broad research and policy agenda, including contributions from any discipline which can offer relevant insights associated with the remaking of the world space economy and its shaping of our cities and regions.

    •EU and OECD agendas for Smart, Inclusive, and Sustainable Economies
    •Modelling and theorising the space economy: urban renewal and regional growth
    •The future of work and work-welfare regimes: labour market policy, flexibility, resilience or flexploitations?
    •New approaches to agglomeration and the clustering of economic life
    •Creative city-regions and urban leadership
    •The impacts of devolution and constitutional change on economic policy, and vice versa
    •The politics and policies of urban and regional austerity
    •Cities, Regions, or City-Regions: searching for scalar and institutional fixes
    •The lived experience of urban and rural change in times of austerity
    •Post-suburbia and governance of metropolitan areas
    •Social enterprise, the third sector, and alternative economic geographies
    •New industrial spaces of the 21st Century and the future of old industrial regions
    •Low Carbon Futures: Green deals and beyond
    •Methodological challenges for studying crisis, austerity, and the space economy

  • The new European Urban Agenda - XIX Conference on the EU
    18 November 2014, Espai Francesca Bonnemaison
    c. Sant Pere Més Baix, 7
    08003 Barcelona - Barcelona (Spain)

    Description: The International Relations Directorate of Barcelona Provincial Council annually organizes a Conference on the European Union. The aim of this conference is to promote a forum for political debate around key European issues and their impact on local governments. The challenges, opportunities and role of municipalities in Europe are the focus of this discussion. In this nineteenth edition, we will discuss the new European Urban Agenda.

    The European Commission has acknowledged, for many years now, that European cities are vital to respond to global challenges and implement the EU Agenda for growth Agenda by 2020, and calls for a more unified approach in relation to urban policy.

    The recent reform of EU regional policy has encouraged its urban dimension; thus, it is expected that over half of the European Regional Development Fund investments for the period 2014-2020 will be carried out in cities and urban areas. Furthermore, Member States are required to invest at least 5% of funds in to integrated and sustainable urban actions.

    Given that more than two thirds of Europeans live in cities, it is essential to give more prominence to European cities and a strategic place for the Urban Agenda in the EU decision-making process. Local governments should be involved in the achievement of Europe 2020 strategy objectives for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, providing a territorial dimension and their knowledge of local needs. Therefore, they should be directly involved in the definition of European priorities and programmes; in the words of the former Commissioner for Regional and Urban Policy, Johannes Hahn, "Cities of tomorrow are the Europe of tomorrow".

    This conference aims to discuss and explore ways to give cities a greater role in European politics, to ensure that their needs are better understood and policies are better coordinated. The discussions are intended to highlight the fundamental role that cities can play in achieving broader European objectives such as combating climate change, unemployment and social exclusion.

    The conference will feature local and international speakers from various fields, including political representatives, European institutions, journalists, academic experts and members of municipalities.

  • KARIM – Boosting the competitiveness of innovative SMEs in Europe
    02 October 2014, Palais des Académies
    Rue Ducale 1, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgique - Brussels (Belgium)

    Description: Manage for today, lead for tomorrow – the success of every SME is built on this premise. Yet today’s economic context coupled with growing global competition has made it all the more challenging for Europe’s SMEs to survive let alone thrive. That’s why the support network developed by KARIM, an EU initiative set up in North West Europe, has been so instrumental.

    The KARIM Conference taking place on 2 October 2014 is inviting innovation enthusiasts and practitioners to come along for fresh insights into ‘Responsible Innovation’, a new philosophy that the EU is firmly supporting.

    Perspective(s) on Responsible Innovation

    Set up to assist SMEs in North West Europe, KARIM has made a significant breakthrough in the innovation landscape by considering ‘responsibility’ from the perspective of those behind it - entrepreneurs and researchers.

    Its new guidance book, ‘Responsible Innovation in the context of the KARIM project’, proves there is competitive advantage by innovating using new technology from universities in a way, which considers the impact of innovation on society, groups within it and the environment. Such is the evidence that the EU has invested in KARIM to encourage wider adoption of responsible innovation.

    Organised as a part of the European SME Week, this one-day event will showcase and evaluate the projects achievements across three areas of activity:

    Knowledge base

    Complementing the guidance on Responsible Innovation, the project has conducted transnational research to answer a series of questions related to SME & labs international cooperation: How do SMEs build cooperation in KARIM regions, how do they prepare to go international, what is the available support in their jurisdictions? What is the role of spinoff in technology transfer in the several KARIM regions and their experiences in the technology transfer from academia to industry?

    Capacity building

    In just over two years, KARIM has proven the value of transnational cooperation between academia and innovation support organisations to foster cross border partnerships between labs and SMEs.

    SME support

    KARIM provides transnational support to SMEs in order to enhance their involvement in European cooperation. This support builds on tools dedicated to business development managers, students with a collaborative placement scheme, SMEs responsible innovation diagnostic, (…)

  • CAAC Working Group Creative Cities
    19 September 2014, Plymouth College of Art - Plymouth (United Kingdom)

    Description: On September 19, to coincide with the Ocean City Festival and the new round of European funding programmes, the city of Plymouth and Plymouth College of Art are hosting a meeting between stakeholders across the European Atlantic Sea Board, linked to the Creative and Cultural Industries.

    Plymouth is establishing itself as more of a European hub for business and visitors, through which the creative sector will play an important part. Yet, there still remains a lot to be learned from other cities that have been successful in communicating their cultural offer and using culture and creativity as a platform for not only increasing quality of life and well-being, but also for “hard growth” and investment from the business community to ensure better and more evenly distributed prosperity.

    Looking to the Conference of Atlantic Arc Cities for inspiration, Plymouth College of Art will play host to a conference on Creative Cities in the Atlantic Area, to learn from each other, share best practice and form closer links for mutual benefit, both culturally, as well as socio-economically, through collaborative projects.
