Contents and Goals

The team from RWTH Aachen University, the University of Stuttgart and the University of Potsdam are conducting a joint Research Training Group on the future developments of small medium-sized cities (20,000-50,000 inhabitants) for the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The Research Training Group is inter- and transdisciplinary in nature and aims to investigate future issues and transformation concerns in selected municipalities of the established medium-sized city network in order to initiate change through new forms of city-making and participation.
