The third bi-annual meeting of the Liveable Cities Expert Panels will take place on Thursday the 6th of June in Birmingham (10.30 for an 11.00am start, 3.00pm finish)


At this event we will focus upon the synergies as well as the tensions between being smart and liveable, the current economic growth paradigm and an increasing world population. As always, delegates will be given the opportunity to shape our research programme and in the afternoon there is the opportunity to engage on a one-to-one level with the research teams via parallel ‘deep dive’ breakout sessions.
