New lecture series about infrastructures and sustainability

Due to the current developments concerning the corona virus, the last two lectures of the series `Pompen of verzuipen’  have been cancelled. The lecture series has been organized together with the research hub `Transforming infrastructures for sustainable cities’. Studium Generale might offer the lectures online. More information can be found on the website of Studium Generale.


In coproduction with the hub Transforming Infrastructures for Sustainable Cities, the Studium Generale programme of Utrecht University has organised a lecture series about infrastructures and sustainability.


Professor Timothy Moss from the Humboldt University of Berlin will kick off the series on 4 February with a lecture on ‘Remaking the city through infrastructure’.

Other lectures will be delivered by top experts from various Dutch universities and cover specific infrastructures such as mobility, waste, water, energy and data. These topics will be approached from different theoretical angles such as geosciences, engineering, public administration, law, and anthropology.

The series provides the audience with state-of-the-art knowledge about the urgency and complexities of the transformation of infrastructures to achieve urban sustainability.

Everybody who is interested in the role of infrastructures in urban sustainability is warmly invited to attend these lectures. All lectures start at 8.00 PM and take place in the Academy Building of Utrecht University. The lectures will also be filmed and made available online on the website of Studium Generale afterwards.

Transforming Infrastructures for Sustainable Cities is one of the hubs of Utrecht University's strategic theme Pathways to Sustainability. In the hub, an interdisciplinary team of researchers and societal partners focuses on the question: how do we envision and identify pathways to cities and infrastructures of the future?
