URP2020 will take place as hybrid conference. Registration is open! Get early bird rate till 30 September 2020.

URP2020 contributes to the implementation of the New Leipzig Charter  and the Territorial Agenda 2020 and is part of the events of Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union since July 2020.

URP2020 will bring together outstanding keynote speakers and connect scientific insights with enlightening experiences of on-going projects in practice. Join a stimulating conference that fosters learning on various levels, i.e, from the local level via entire regions to the broader European understanding of integrated urban-rural development. We offer a forum for exchange and support the co-design of ideas to tackle the challenges for sustainable and resilient regional development.

URP2020 will take place in a hybrid format, i.e. there will be physical meetings in Leipzig open for digital participation and digital-only-sessions. This means, you will be able to actively participate and contribute to all sessions also remotely.
