14-16 October 2015 Warsaw Regional Forum 2015, Warsaw
Territorial uncertainty and vulnerability as a challenge for urban and regional policy

The principal topic of the 2015 conference will be concentrated around such problems as vulnerability, uncertainty and resilience of territories. The subject of discussion will be threats of economic (global crisis), environmental, institutional and geopolitical nature. These issues will be analyzed from a perspective of multiple spatial scales at the European, transborder, national, regional, urban and local levels. The conference's topic fits well into the current ongoing debate over the spatial development that takes place in the EU, combining academic discussion with policies of territorial dimension presently carried out, including especially the cohesion policy (i.a. relating to the EU Sixth Cohesion Report as well as to the outcomes of ESPON findings).
