25th APDR Congress - Special Session - Students' come and go. Unpacking the effects of academic mobility in urban metabolism and regeneration

Call for papers: Special Session SS04 - Students' come and go. Unpacking the effects of academic mobility in urban metabolism and regeneration

Special Session (SS04) organizers: Carlos Vieira, Isabel Vieira and Rosalina Costa.

The aim and scope of the special session:

Academic mobility’s impact in hosting cities and regions is often overlooked as it is perceived as being episodic, with a limited and temporary effect. Against this background, this special session aims to unpack the long - lasting influence of academic mobility in urban metabolism and regeneration processes. From larger to smaller cities and universities, how can we make use of the principles of a circular economy to understand the effects, strengths and limits of academic mobility in regional development? As academic mobility is increasing worldwide, this special session looks at the particular challenges it raises for a sustainable future.

Abstract Submission Deadline: May 6, 2018

Results of the review process will be communicated to authors by approximately: May 20, 2018

The 25th APDR Congress - Circular Economy, Urban Metabolism and Regional Development: Challenges for a Sustainable Future will take place in FCSH - Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas da Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, in July 5-6, 2018.
