Organized by: École nationale d'administration publique (ENAP)

Cities have the potential to tackle society’s wicked problems, from disease to inequity to climate change. Yet, challenges remain when it comes to weaving science into the implementation of urban interventions.
Presented by Collaboratoire Uni-Cité, this panel is dedicated to bolstering collaboration between scientists and municipal decision-makers around urban transformation projects. Focused on solutions and successful practices, this interactive panel will explore the opportunities and tensions between municipal and academic contexts. Participants will be invited to join a concept mapping exercise to generate ideas around the panel’s key question: What is needed to strengthen science for urban policy?
