IOER Forum

The "IOER Forum" is a public platform for scientific dialogue and exchange with society. With this event series, we highlight current topics in the field of sustainable development and transformation of cities and regions. We invite speakers to join us: from research (science dialogue) or from public administration, companies or civil society (science-ppolicy dialogue). The lectures of our guests from Germany and abroad will be accompanied by short inputs from the research work of the IOER.

The "IOER Forum" is open to all interested persons. Participation is free of charge, registration is not required. We look forward to a lively exchange with you.
