The Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space (SKuOR) in cooperation with the Centre of Local Planning (IFOER) at the Department of Spatial Planning, Faculty of Architecture and Planning of Vienna University of Technology, hosts a 7-days summer school (30 August – 5 September 2014) directed at international Master’s and PhD students, as well as early-stage researchers and practitioners dealing with public urban space. You are invited to join local residents, international keynote speakers, urban activists, planning professionals, and European scholars in changing urban realities.

An annual meeting of the AESOP Thematic Group on Public Spaces and Urban Cultures, a group operating under the institutional patronage of the Association of European Schools of Planning, is scheduled prior to the summer school (29 August 2014, Vienna). The meeting will bring together researchers and practitioners from around Europe to discuss the current umbrella theme of Becoming Local  in a transdisciplinary way. The meeting is open to all summer school participants.
