About the state of the art paper

In 2023 STUE will conduct “state of the art” paper about research in Tampere University on the themes of sustainable transformation of urban environments. This meeting will be a first step, aiming to 1) begin building joint understanding and 2) detect important themes of what we know and what calls for further research as well as key and key researchers/groups working on them.

The state of the art paper will be made to enhance the visibility of the research and identify collaboration possibilities across projects and disciplines. Important questions include: What are most important themes for research in the area? What do we already know about sustainable transformation of urban environments? What calls for further research? How research done in different projects and disciplines complements each other and could help in filling the gaps?
