Shrink Smart - The Governance of Shrinkage


Policy informing workshop in Brussels

The consortium of SHRINK SMART is very happy to announce that the final workshop was held in Brussels on 26 March 2012.

During the last decade, population shrinkage has become a normal path for many European cities. In the future, it is likely that Europe will have to deal with the consequences of the depopulation of its urban regions. Given this context, The European Union through its 7FP funded the SHRINK SMART project; a comparative study of various European shrinking cities. During the workshop the researchers involved in the project will present their results and recommendations on how to deal with it effectively on the European level.

The workshop took place at the Foundation Universitaire, in Brussels.
