Chapter 4: Urban and Regional Research Ecology

Urban Regional Research Ecology

The experiences of the last few years show that there is a need for a more structured and vigorous knowledge infrastructure to optimally facilitate the growing collaborations between the city, knowledge institutions and societal partners, and also to secure knowledge for the future. In the context of the challenges that confront Europe, it is obvious and essential that cities in Europe collaborate. After all, they find themselves in each other’s geographic and ecological proximity, and also in each other’s social, cognitive and organisational proximity.
