ESRC Research Seminar

The Governance of Eco-City Innovation

The aim of this ESRC Research Seminar is to explore the governance of current eco-city innovation, and to facilitate the development of academic and expert networks with a view to stimulating policy-relevant research and knowledge transfer. The seminar series consists of five consecutive events hosted during 2011―2012. The events address the multi-faceted interrelationship between governance and innovation. This is particularly pertinent, given the recent rapid expansion and mainstreaming of eco-city initiatives, which gives rise to important questions about their political, social and economic governance.
