Dear N-aerus Members and Partners,

In this N-aerus Newsletter we would like to draw your attention to two headlines:

-       2nd Call for Proposal for the N-aerus – Cities Alliance Partnership – DEADLINE Aug 21

-       Vacancy Announcement Assistant Professor at the Department of Architecture, TU Darmstadt – DEADLINE Aug 13

After having received substantial interest for our Call for Expressions of Interest within the frame of the N-aerus – Cities Alliance partnership, we are pleased to announce our 2nd Call for Proposals (pls see linked document for your further reference) to actively form part of one out of three working groups on the basis of research interests. Working groups have been formed on the following themes:

1)    Informality   

2)    Governance/Policy

3)    Housing and Planning

The aim of the working groups is to formulate and disseminate an evidence-based and policy oriented paper on the WGs’ subjects. The outcome shall be presented as a joint policy paper of CA and NAerus to be discussed with relevant policy-makers in Europe and then presented at H III: the policy

paper will benefit from a comparative lens, and will include findings of what has been done on the topic (state-of-the-art and summary) as well as: (a) recommendations for action based on these findings; (b) recommendations for further research.

We therefore invite N-Aerus members to respond to the call indicating their preferred Working Group to be part of by 21st of August 2015.


Pls confirm your interest to both, Luisa.Moretto@ulb.ac.be and viviana.dauria@asro.kuleuven.be – do not reply to this email address!
