COST C20 Urban Knowledge Arena: Background 4/4

  • Increased demand for cross-boundary production of knowledge
  • Need for new types of capacities, knowledge and know-how
  • We are in a transition from sectoral and disciplinary working cultures towards more comprehensive and cross-disciplinary ways for learning and knowledge production, but… Weak structural support for this mode of knowledge production

COST C20 Urban Knowledge Arena: Urban Knowledge 1/2

  • Urban Knowledge?
  • - Non-established term
  • - Arguable term
  • A new discipline? A new field of science?
  • or…
  • A way of drawing together knowledge from
  • a variety of sources
  • a multitude of disciplines and traditions
  • science, experience and lay judgement
