In this seminar a group of Swedish researchers will be running a series of ‘Lightning Talks’ (10 min presentations by different speakers), followed by an open discussion with South African colleagues from Department of Geography & Environmental studies, Stellenbosch university. Each talk introduces a research topic, e.g., urban green spaces, informal settlement, sharing economy, automated vehicles, urban governance, crime and community safety. State of the art technology is the red-thread in these research projects, with clear connections with practice. The goal is to share ideas and identify potential common research interests/methods that can be interesting to follow up in near future.

Keywords: urban design, built environment, security, green areas, informal settlements , sharing economy, governance.
Venue: Stellenbosch University, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies
