TURNS  – Tampere Urban Research Network for Sustainability

TURNS is an interdisciplinary network of urban research. TURNS’s mission is to strengthen cooperation between Tampere-based researchers, participate in the development of multidisciplinary urban research, compile an interdisciplinary strategic group for urban research and to create a national and internationally recognizable brand for urban research in Tampere. Interested researchers from all fields are welcome to join us!

Democracy Research Network

Democracy is not a comprehensive, self-defining, or static idea. Its meaning evolves as it travels through different political, cultural, disciplinary, and personal boundaries. The aim of the Democracy Research Network is exactly to discuss its different meanings, learn and share the different ways in which scholars across Tampere University are engaging with democracy in their research, and strengthen the collaboration between researchers working on this field. Interested researchers are welcome to join!
