TRANSCEND Seminar: City/science intersections
Prof. Marie-Christine Therrien presents a scoping review using approaches promoted by Peters et al. (2018).
The goal of the research examines what is known about science for urban policy according to scientific literature. Science for urban policy is the use of scientific evidence and approaches by city/municipal administrations to guide policy-making and decision-making. Large and medium-sized cities and cities with populations larger than 30,000 people were included.
The objectives of conducting a scoping review were to identify the existing research on urban science for policy, specifically the context for its emergence, the actors involved, the structures and mechanisms used to strengthen links between researchers and decision-makers, its challenges, and results. The seminar will present the results of this scoping review.
Marie-Christine Therrien is a Management Professor at the École nationale d’administration publique, and Director of Cité-ID LivingLab Urban Resilience Governance.
