If you are an institutional member of EURA, and would like to host a future EURA please contact us.
EURA has, from the outset, had a close and productive working relationship with the Urban Affairs Association (UAA). The two associations share the same aims and, in an effort to expand exchanges among urban scholars working in different countries and contexts, EURA and UAA agreed to strengthen their relationship by organising a series of forward looking conferences on ‘City Futures’.
The first of these international conferences was held in Chicago, USA in June 2004. This conference was viewed as a great success and the two associations decided to organise an ongoing series of ‘City Futures’ international conferences at five-yearly intervals. City Futures Conferences have been held as follows Chicago, USA (2004); Madrid, Spain (2009); Paris, France (2014) and Dublin, Ireland (2019).
EURA gives a young scholar award for emerging scholars whose work exemplifies outstanding scholarship in urban affairs. The recipient receives a 1.000 Euro honorarium as a travel grant that will allow the winner to participate at the next EURA or UAA conference.
Are eligible participants of the conference with an accepted proposal in one of the conference tracks, pursuing doctoral research, regardless of academic discipline.
The award ceremony usually takes place at the end of each year's conference.
