From September 10-12, the international Urb@Exp research project held a kick-off meeting with all partners at the International Centre for integrated assessment and Sustainable development of Maastricht University. Urb@Exp received funding for 3 years from the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe and establishes an intense collaboration between Maastricht University, Lund University, Malmö University and Graz University, city partners from Maastricht, Antwerp, Malmö, Graz and Leoben, and the consultancy Pantopicon.

Under the leadership of Prof. René Kemp from Maastricht University, the project will examine urban experiments with ongoing living and city labs to evaluate, conceptualize and improve new forms of urban governance and city development. Dr. Christian Scholl (ICIS) coordinates the project on behalf of the consortium. Dr. Joop de Kraker and Dr. Ron Cörvers (both ICIS) are also participants in the project.

During the meeting all partners discussed the research agenda and presented their contribution to the project. Upon arrival, they received a warm reception by the Alderman in the Town Hall of Maastricht. The next Urb@Exp meeting will take place in Malmö in March 2015. Soon, a website will inform all interested scholars and urban practitioners on the process and the results of this project.
