14th meeting: Taking Stock of Complexity Sciences: Evidence of Progress in Urban Planning?

Published at: 6 July 2015

During the 11th and 12th of February 2016 the University of Bamberg hosted the 14th thematic group meeting. At this workshop presenters discussed the recent progress and gaps in the planning & complexity debate, in particular on research methods, complexity-friendly governance arrangements, translating complexity to practice, and information technology and planning.

A special contribution was made by keynote speaker Dr. Andreas Duit, critically discussing the concept of resilience as part of complexity theory. From this discussion he identified several key steps for the further development of complexity thinking in governance and spatial planning. Our sincere thanks goes to the Chair for the Governance of Innovative and Complex Technological Systems, at the University of Bamberg, Germany for organizing this interactive and inspiring event.
