Special Session (SS04): Students' come and go. Unpacking the effects of academic mobility in urban metabolism and regeneration
Academic mobility’s impact in hosting cities and regions is often overlooked as it is perceived as being episodic, with a limited and temporary effect. Against this background, this special session aims to unpack the long-lasting influence of academic mobility in urban metabolism and regeneration processes. From larger to smaller cities and universities, how can we make use of the principles of a circular economy to understand the effects, strengths and limits of academic mobility in regional development? As academic mobility is increasing worldwide, this special session looks at the particular challenges it raises for a sustainable future.
