NIUA invites you to a Round table consultation on Research needs for promoting smarter, competitive cities, where we have Mr. Alain Le Saux, Secretary General of Metropolis (Barcelona) as the special guest speaker. He has received much appreciation for his pioneering role in promoting training and knowledge sharing between local governments across the globe. He has widely contributed in developing coordination structures between the World Associations of Cities and Local Authorities (G4, G4+, WACLAC and UCLG).
Metropolis and NIUA have initiated a collaboration to provide training and capacity building to enable cities to respond to increasingly complex urban planning, design, technology and development challenges. NIUA is also looking forward to becoming a regional training centre within the network of Metropolis International Training Institutes.
