On the local interaction between science and government, research and execution, theory and practice in times of accelerating and accumulating global crises.
This publication focuses on the importance, opportunities and obstacles to formal collaboration between local and regional authorities and knowledge institutions in 2022 and beyond. The continious collaboration between government, science and education is an important humus layer for creative
and commercial developments in both region and city. This publication primarily aims to offer a conceptual framework, in which the formal collaboration between science and government plays a significant role locally in the design of the future of the city and the region.
