Ruhr Lecture on Key Issues in Metropolitan Research

Since 2013, the RUHR LECTURE has been organized by the Institute of Geography at Ruhr-University Bochum and the Faculty of Spatial Planning at TU Dortmund University. They are now joined by the Joint Centre Urban Systems at the University of Duisburg-Essen. As of the winter term 2016/17, the RUHR LECTURE is organized by the Competence Field "Metropolitan Research" of the University Alliance Ruhr (UAR).

In this winter term 2022/23, the Ruhr Lecture deals with strategic approaches to transformation processes in urban spaces across disciplines and from a variety of perspectives under the topic "Sustainable Transformation - Strategies of Urban Changes". How do cities and regions meet the growing transformation requirements in connection with the Grand Challenges? Which regional potentials are being used? What possibilities are there for steering these processes? These and more questions will be examined in greater detail in the English-language lecture series on selected Mondays from 4 to 7 pm. Once again, the Ruhr Lecture will take place in the tried and tested virtual format. Access data for the virtual lecture series can be obtained by contacting metropolenforschung@uaruhr.de not before October 2022. 

The program of the winter semester 22/23 will follow soon and can be consulted here.
