UGoveRN is an academic platform to build, share and communicate research activities in the field of urban governance and planning.


UGoveRN focuses on new and dynamic forms of interactions between public administrations, private sector and community actors in urban development. We believe that contemporary conditions require novel insights and interventions into complex governance arrangements. The main aim of UGoveRN is to provide an academic platform for researchers who work in the field of urban governance to share, co-produce and publicize knowledge. Furthermore, the platform connects academics, practitioners and communities who work in the field of urban governance to discuss ongoing research, collaborate and co-create.
