Next - Nature Based Solutions for Smart Cities

This summer school is co-organised and co-funded by a consortium of international partners financed by several funding programs.


NEXT summer school offers a number of highly interactive sessions designed to familiarise the audience with the state of art in the field and analytical tools; this will be followed by supervised group research, and then by presentations of research findings to the school faculty and stakeholders. The topics for group research will be identified by students with a help of the School faculty and stakeholder representatives. To facilitate the process, comprehensive descriptions of four case studies will be prepared, each characterised by several interrelated environmental, land-use or social conflicts. The task of student groups would be to identify the particular problem they want or are capable to analyse and address given time and resource constraints, and to develop research proposals containing the research question, its justification and research methodology.
