The IEEE E-TEMS 2021 Best Paper Award to CaPs researchers!

The IEEE European Technology and Engineering Management Summit (E-TEMS) conference was organized online on 18-20 March 2021. The Best Paper Award of the conference was awarded to CaPs researchers Coline Senior, Mina Jowkar, Alenka Temeljotov-Salaj and Agnar Johansen from NTNU, Norway!

The study of Senior et al. focused on the best practices of public participation in smart and sustainable urban development projects in the Norwegian context. This study resulted from a collaboration between academics and municipal staff. Documents were provided by the municipality and analysis was conducted by academic staff in order to identify the different degrees of public participation at each step of the project. Results from this study indicate that pushing the threshold slightly higher at each step can help concretizing citizen empowerment at the neighborhood level.

Congratulations, everyone!
