We are pleased to invite you to the Annual Centre for Urban Studies (CUS) Networking Event which this year will be on the theme of Cities and Health.

This year’s Network event will be held online. It aims to explore shared interests and stimulate future collaborations between scholars at the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science, by bringing together scholars looking at health aspects in urban areas from different methodological, epistemological and ontological perspectives. We cordially invite members of the Centre for Urban Studies (CUS), the Centre for Urban Mental Health (UMH) and the Centre for Social Sciences and Global Health (SSGH) to participate. If you are not a member of one of these centres, but would like to participate, you are welcome too (see below).

The event will be followed by a seed grant competition, funded by the Centre for Urban Studies, to enable developing further the ideas generated during the event.

The event will be opened by UMH co-director prof. dr. Claudi Bockting, CUS director prof. dr. Maria Kaika, prof. dr. Anita Hardon (Global Health) and prof. dr. Eileen Moyer (Global Health). All participants will give a one-minute presentation of their research (no powerpoints) to allow everyone to become acquainted with each other’s field of expertise. The presentations will be followed by ‘round table’ discussions organized around specific common themes (in breakout rooms).

If you would like to join this online event, please register for participation by sending an email to as soon as possible. Please indicate in your email:

  • Your name
  • Your affiliation
  • A maximum of three key research themes that best describe your current work
  • Whether you are a CUS, UMH, or SSGH member, or other interested

Further information will be announced in due course.

We very much look forward to your participation!
