IBA_SUMMIT N°3

KNOWLEDGE | BASED | URBANISM

FR 27 APRIL 2018 | 10.00 – 16.00 O’ CLOCK
Assembly hall (Aula) of the Neue Universität | Universitätsplatz 1 | Heidelberg

The IBA_SUMMIT is the biennial top-level meeting for mayors, university directors, town planners and business representatives from international “Knowledge Pearls”. These are small and medium-sized science cities with a global reputation. Because: comparable cities face comparable challenges. It is therefore particularly fruitful to engage in a joint dialogue and to learn from each other.

The participants present their urban design projects and exchange their experiences and visions for urban development in the knowledge society.

In 2018, for the first time, the IBA_SUMMT will be open to the public. The conference will be held in English. Attendance is free of charge.

If you would like to take part, please register by 3 April 2018. For further inquiries, please contact: f.bettac@iba.heidelberg.de
