We are very pleased to announce that the paper authored by Grzegorz Masik, Iwona Sagan and James W. Scott has been recently published in the “Cities” journal. The authors deal with the prevailing topic of Smart City strategies, concerning activities and policies implemented in Polish cities.
The project: “Cities as Arenas of Political Innovation in the Strengthening of Deliberative and Participatory Democracy” (Acronym: EUARENAS), led by Professor Iwona Sagan, has received funding from the European Commission under the prestigious Horizon 2020 Program.
On the basis of the recent onset of coronavirus outbreak and an unprecedented situation that affects our everyday life, we decided to conduct on-line research on the perception of home / social isolation during the Covid-19 epidemic. The research is coordinated by dr Joanna Stepien from our Department and professor Tomasz Michalski from Department of Regional Development at the University of Gdańsk.

Professor Iwona Sagan was invited by the Director of the Strategy Department at the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy to join a body of experts responsible for the preparation of the programme of the 11th World Urban Forum, that will be held in Katowice in 2022. Congratulations!
