The status seminar 2023 of the funding priority «Sustainable Development of Urban Regions» funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will take place on 26 and 27 September in Bangkok, Thailand. The aim of the Status Seminar 2023 is to bring the SURE collaborative projects and the Asian partner organizations together to discuss the focus topics and current results of the collaborative projects.

The first day will centre on knowledge exchange between the SURE projects and their local partners. The consortia will report on the projects’ activities and their status to enable the identification of synergies between projects. The Asian partners, on the other hand, will have the opportunity to learn about all SURE projects.

On the second day participants will exchange on experiences and challenges to form collaborations that are necessary for a successful implementation of the project results. First ideas for the transfer of the project results should be generated.

Closed event. Participation is by invitation only.
