IOER Forum

The IOER Forum is a series of events organised by the IOER to promote dialogue and exchange with society. Every year, in a spring and an autumn series, we dedicate ourselves to current topics of sustainable development and transformation of neighbourhoods, cities and regions with different event formats. Guests from Germany and abroad include actors from research, public administration, companies, planning practice, politics, business, associations and civil society. The IOER Forum is open to all interested parties. Participation is free of charge, registration is not required. To enable as many people as possible to attend our events, most of them will be broadcast live.
