Last year the Strategic Innovation Agenda Smart Sustainable Cities” was accepted, with Lund University and Urban Arena as one of the co-partners for the agenda. The next step in this process is work for a proposal for the Call on Strategic Innovation Programs. Lena Neij, coordinator for Urban Arena, presented the ongoing work with the application for the Strategic Innovation Program - Smart Sustainable Cities.

The work with Urban Arena is continuing this year with three more wake-up seminars during the autumn with the themes water, mobility and urban densification. Urban Arena will also participate at the Sustainable City Development Conference in Malmö, 30 November - 2 December. A call for abstracts is out for the conference with deadline for submissions on 15 August.
