What is URBAN LUNCH HOUR?

Urban Lunch Hour is a meeting of urban researchers from multidisciplinary backgrounds. During the lunch, researchers will get to hear one or two presentations about current urban research from organizing institutions. Researchers are able to choose to present their work in Finnish or in English. After the presentation, there will be time and possibility for questions and discussion about the impact of research results to the city and society development on a wider scale.

By Urban Lunch Hour, our goal is to gather urban researchers of Helsinki Urban Region together to network and share their expertise and ideas. The main interest is to assemble urban researchers together from various institutions of Helsinki Metropolitan Area. By these lunch hours, our aim is to increase the fruitful communication between researchers and strengthen peer support among researchers within urban themes and different methods.

The event is or­gan­ized by:

Helsinki Institute of Urban and Regional Studies (Urbaria), Urban Research and Statistics Unit (City of Helsinki) and Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities.
