The Robert Bosch Stiftung-funded Graduate College "Medium-Sized Cities as Co-Participation Cities" is organizing a 1.5-day conference in Grimma on July 11th and 12th, 2022.

We invite our 40 cooperating municipalities from 12 federal states in Germany as well as other people that are interested in medium-sized cities. The aim is to bring the cities among each other, but also municipalities and science into a constructive exchange on the topics of participation, medium-sized cities and transformative research. We would be very pleased if we could also enrich the perspectives and the knowledge on these topics with the view from outside. Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to our conference entitled 'In the Middle'. We look forward to welcoming you in Grimma at the Klosterkirche! The program with all information about the conference is available here:
