This workshop is organized by the Urban Systems Group, Germany, and is part of the 4th Competence Field Metropolitan Research (KoMet)-Day, an annual conference hosted by KoMet which focuses on 'Urban complexity: Science Perspectives of Complexity and Transformation on Sustainable Urban Development'. The aim of the workshop is to gather pre- and post-doc researchers from different disciplines to discuss ideas and experiences on the following, and related topics:

- Concepts and theories of transformative research and sustainability transitions - The roles of researchers and scientific institutions in co-productive transition processes

- Tools and methods transforming research institutions and scientific policies for climate-positive research activities, like modelling or/and the experimental turn of living labs

- Materiality of transition discourse, e.g., how infrastructure, artefacts and objects affect transitions, and also how this is linked to immaterial heritages of norms, values, traditions, beliefs, etc. in transformation discourses (e.g., impact of risk perception).

Presentation proposals can be submitted until 31 October 2022. Please find more information on the KoMet website as well as in the call for proposals.
