UniverCity Bochum - síť, značka a strategický přístup pro budoucnost města Bochumi
Hotel Flora 15. 5. 2014 15. 5. 2014
With eight universities and more than 53,000 students Bochum is one of the biggest places of higher education in Germany. However, Bochum is primarily still perceived as a city of coal, steel and automobile industry. "UniverCity Bochum", a network of local universities, Chamber of Commerce, City of Bochum and further stakeholders aims at further strengthening Bochum as an excellent city of science and (higher) education. Beside being a network, UniverCity Bochum is also a brand (name) and a strategic approach. In that sense UniverCity Bochum has recently become a crucial factor in urban development and its politics (and policies). Lars Tata is responsible for the so-called "network coordination" of UniverCity Bochum. He is employed at the City of Bochum, Department of Overall Municipal Affairs of the Lord Mayor. As a spatial planner and political scientist (Univercity of Dortmund) Lars Tata has been practically engaged at the interface of science and economy/society in different professional contexts for several years.
