Professor Beth Perry recently gave a seminar at the University of Gothenburg’s Business School on ‘Beyond Critique: Co-producing Urban Transformations’. The seminar was part of a day-long planning process for the development of a Research School for Transdisciplinary Research as part of the international Mistra Urban Futures centre. Academics at Chalmers and Gothenburg Universities were reflecting on how to support PhD students in ensuring relevance, application and impact from their studies. Anna Ledin, Director of Environment for Gothenburg City Council, also spoke at the seminar, providing valuable insights from policy.
