On 28 January 2024, the workshop titled "Green Transformation of Industrial Cities", organised by Duisburg Business & Innovation and the European Institute for Comparative Urban Research, EURICUR, addressed transformation challenges in post-industrial cities. Highlighting the challenges of systemic transformation, TRANSFORMER project partner Prof. Matthias Kiese provided valuable insights into innovation and regional transformation capacity. He also presented the conceptual framework of the TRANSFORMER project that focuses on the application of living lab methodologies for cross-sectorial innovation on a regional scale.

Dmitri Domanski further elaborated on the TRANSFORMER project, focusing on "Innovation through Regional Living Labs." Participants were encouraged to engage with the project through an upcoming event titled "How to accelerate the shift to climate neutrality? Designing inclusive solutions for regions."

The contributions from TRANSFORMER partners fostered discussions on potential collaborations between academia, municipalities, and regions to ensure greener and more resilient post-industrial cities and regions.
