Think Local act Global - UNIC CityLabs Programme Strand

28 Sep 2021

The European University of Post-Industrial Cities (UNIC) is an alliance of eight universities in post-industrial cities. UNIC CityLabs are meeting points where university and city partners are working together to identify and solve societal challenges faced by their regions. The First International CityLabs Festival will take place in Liège, Belgium between the 14th and the 16th of October 2021. This Festival brings together citizens, academia, government and business from the eight Cities to identify challenges their localities are facing and to try to find sustainable solutions. 

This is a hybrid festival with both in-person and virtual programming! We also have events will take place in Cork as part of UCC Community Week. We want you to be part of the Festival!
