Knowledge And The European City

  • WILLEM VAN WINDEN

Abstract

This paper discusses and illustrates the 'knowledge turn' in urban policy across Europe. We identify four manifestations of it: 1) widespread efforts to lure knowledge workers; 2) a growing involvement of knowledge institutes in urban development and planning processes, 3) an explicit 'knowledge based' approach to planning and the design of public space, and 4) efforts to underline a 'knowledge city' identity using all kinds of marketing and branding techniques.
