Title: Digitalised cities and urban economy. New type of Urban Dynamics
Urban economics is essential for viable cities. Typically, individual companies and other urban actors constantly make dissipated location decisions in the framework of regulations and institutions, seeking for the best possible locations. Resulting patterns – clusters, networks or dynamics – are often hard to predict or control, although they follow a certain logical order.
Presenter: Jenni Partanen (Professor of
Future City in TalTech, Architect)
Title: Key economic actors in Tallinn’s digital urban transformation
Digitalization of the city of Tallinn represents major changes in how we interact in the city now and in the future. While the most extreme predictions about a completely virtual urban life have clearly not been realized, it is also clear that we are witnessing many interesting developments in how digital technologies are changing cities.
This presentation presents findings from urban studies research based on discussions with representatives of different local organizations in Tallinn. It calls for discussion about the urban actors that have had and will have the most substantial impact on changing our everyday interactions.
Presenter: Olli Jakonen (PhD Student of Urban Studies at TalTech)
