Agota Barabas and Joerg Rainer Noennig will give a presentation on the topic “Transformation research: A cross-cutting perspective on tools, technologies and approaches for sustainable urban regions development projects” at the IOER Annual Conference 2022 in Dresden on 23 September 2022 on behalf of the SURE Facilitation & Synthesis Research project. The presentation is part of the D1 – Presentation session „Power and Transformation“.
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funding priority SURE “Sustainable Development of Urban Regions” promotes applied research. Ten collaborative projects within the SURE framework develop concepts and test locally implementable solutions and strategies for sustainable transformation of fast-growing urban regions in Southeast Asia and China. The SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Research project supports the funding priority, facilitates exchange and learning between the projects and beyond, and carries out accompanying research. One pillar of SURE synthesis research has been described as “Research intelligence” – here referred to as a review of digital technical tools and data science approaches. The SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Project has one of the main aims to research and employ state-of-the-art technologies and develop digital tools that help to uncover dormant knowledge („Unknown Knowns“), identify open questions and problems („Known Unknowns“), and outline solutions and trends for future research on sustainable urban development. It will do so by researching the ten collaborative research projects and their scientific context and synthesizing relevant new knowledge from this kind of meta-research. From these (meta- ) research activities, replicable technical instruments and scientific insights are expected to inform sustainable transformation research, education, and practice in the mid-term future. This paper is A cross-cutting perspective on tools, technologies, and approaches for transformative urbanism, as used within SURE priority. It will be examining the used tools for different tasks (e.g. data collection and storage, data management, data visualization) along with other tasks. It will also outline/profile the standard tools and the required technical expertise used/in demand for sustainable urban regions development projects.
