The conference will foster the exchange between land-use-oriented energy research at the UFZ and the national and international scientific community.
The transformation of energy systems has profound implications for the ways in which our societies are organized, and must therefore be understood as process of social change and social innovation.

In many ways, energy systems structure our economies and mirror our attitudes and values regarding the definition of public goods, of justice, and of equity. The conference invites international scholars to discuss social innovations in the context of energy transitions, to reflect their meaning for educational and participatory practices, and to spark a debate about the societal values inherent in these innovations.
A Call for Abstracts is open until March 15, The European Union has launched numerous funding programmes to support small and medium-sized businesses including social enterprises. There are, however, big challenges for the entrepreneurs to benefit from these funding opportunities due to obligations to pre-finance parts of the expenses, due to a lack of compatibility of funding structures and entrepreneurial goals and procedures and due to knowledge deficits on funding opportunities. After WW II, architecture was used and misused as an ideological signifier for competing systems and for new national identities.
Diverse actors and networks took part in architectural exchange within the blocks and beyond the Iron Curtain. Different aid projects posed an attempt to overcome political and economic divides, but at the same time they were often considered as foreign imposition or neo-colonial practice. Tensions between commercial interests and solidarity arose. The conference investigates the multi-layered and multi-centred exchanges between the Global South and socialist as well as capitalist countries relation to architecture and constructing industry from an interdisciplinary perspective. The Call for Papers is open until December 20, A Call for Sessions is open until December 7, Over the course of four days, 26 German and international junior researchers with backgrounds in geography, political science, history and sociology came together to explore novel theoretical concepts and methods in spatial research.
In particular, this year's Spring Academy focused on the interrelation between time and space. The junior researchers were joined by leading scholars to discuss theories and methods of spatial research that reflect on variegated aspects of temporality — whether conceptualised as models of spatial processes, or as social constructs of standardised time.
The event also provided a platform for IRS scholars to present, modify and further advance their ongoing research on spatio-temporal dynamics. Complex changes such as migration, climate change, political crises and economic recessions now coincide in our cities in an unprecedented manner. At the same time, cities should be seen not only as spaces of transition, but — from a procedural planning perspective — as places for converting these challenges into good living conditions for all their citizens.
Current demands on the design and conduct of planning processes and their goals for spatial developments exceed established planning conceptions. The aim of this special issue is to collect and open the discussion about recent approaches, positions and reflections on planning as a space- and action-oriented discipline.

Abstracts of possible contributions can be submitted until October 30, The scientific network was initiated by Prof. It is formed by twelve German early career researchers and is also supported by internationally renowned senior researchers. The network was inaugurated with the first of a series of four intensive workshops from July 10 to 12 in Berlin. Upcoming workshops will be held in Cologne, Tilburg and Berlin.
The aim of these meetings is to initiate joint interdisciplinary projects on the topic e. On May 26th Dr. Lead by Prof. Gavin Bridge Department of Geography at Durham University the round table discussion attracted renowned scholars such as Prof. Harriet Bulkeley and Prof. Simone Abram who contributed to the event as discussants.
The IRS' internationalisation strategy exhibits a distinct geographical focus.
This is driven by the conviction that such a focus allows scholars to pursue in-depth research on matters pertaining to these regions, and to establish productive and lasting relationships with other scholars and academic institutions. Variegated ties to the latter country were established twenty years ago and have been intensified in the context of the IRS' internationalisation strategy and through on-going collaborative research projects.

There is a need on various governance levels to meet the challenges that structurally weak rural regions face. In addition to local and regional actors representatives of the national and European level have to address specific problems like the lack of specialized workers, social exclusion, poverty, financial limitations and crumbling infrastructure.

In recent times, there has been a significant rise in the quantity of goods ordered and delivered. Increasingly, groceries for immediate consumption are also being ordered and delivered, alongside other more common products. The resultant rise in the quantity of transported goods, and the emergence of an intricate delivery network, poses a major challenge for cities: as ever more delivery vehicles navigate city streets, pollution and traffic congestion increase, while traffic accidents become more likely.

They envelop all human beings from birth to death.

As such, they provide the context for human existence. At the same time, however, time and space also serve as major influencing factors in mankind's actions. Hence, a vast literature has developed on time and space as separate dimensions, and recently on time-space as joint dimensions. Interestingly enough, the social connotations of time and space have mostly been studied with the individual human being in mind.
The more societal significance of time and space, whether separately or jointly, have been relatively neglected. It is the purpose of this volume to help fill this lacuna through discussions on some of the many junctions of time, space, and society at large. The discussion will naturally involve concepts and findings from more than just one discipline -- notably, geography, sociology, social history and political science.
It is, thus, obvious that the topic may be highlighted from several perspectives. Given my own education and work, the approach will lean more to the geographical perspective. Geography has a special merit as an integrating framework for the study of time, space, and society. It is a discipline that has space at the center of its raison d'etre and, as such, has always striven for integration, holism and comprehensiveness. Product Details Table of Contents. Show More.
