Manufacturing in European cities

Workshop Cities of Making

Opportunities for strengthening urban based manufacturing in European cities: Cities of Making is a 2.5 year JPI Urban Europe funded research project exploring the future of urban manufacturing in Europe with the focus on three cities: Brussels, London and Rotterdam.

During the workshop we will present what we have learned from experiences in London, Rotterdam and Brussels (each with a distinct industrial heritage) and we will propose ideas, practices and policies focusing on public authorities (and many other relevant stakeholders) that may drive a new age of urban manufacturing embedded in place, people and locally available resources.

The project involves seven organisations: Brussels Enterprises Commerce and Industry, Latitude Platform for Urban Research and Design, Technical University of Delft, The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacturing and Commerce, l’Université libre de Bruxelles, University College London, Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

(NL) Cities of Making heeft de afgelopen 2,5 jaar de rol van stedelijke productie in Europese steden in de 21e eeuw onderzocht met name de aspecten plaats, mensen en lokaal beschikbare resources. Tijdens het evenement zullen we onze belangrijkste bevindingen en het resulterende instrument voor stadsontwikkeling presenteren. De drie teams van Cities of Making presenteren hun hoofdconclusies vanuit de perspectieven: (1) Urban Integration, (2) People, Networks and Policy en (3) Circularity and Technology.
