Next Generation Research on Sustainable Urban Systems: An Advisory Committee Report to the US National Science Foundation
(Sustainable Urban and Metropolitan Development)
*Names in bold indicate Presenter
Responding to this landscape, the Advisory Committee on Environmental Research and Education to the US National Science Foundation (NSF) has released a report articulating a long term research agenda for the next generation of sustainable urban systems research. The report seeks to provide a long term vision to guide NSF and other funding agencies as they invest in new science and science-to-action partnerships moving from an exclusive focus on cities to a focus on sustainable urban systems. The roundtable will engage urban practitioners and the APPAM community to react to this vision. How should the academic community think about teaching, research, inter-disciplinarity, and knowledge co-production to achieve this vision? How should practitioners and policymakers engage with academia to make this vision work for the public good?
