The seminar served as a launch and starting point for the collaboration within the new UrbanFormHub.

The seminar was followed by two days of workshops/discussions how the members of the hub will collaborate and what they will deliver, ending with a sightseeing tour of Stockholm for the foreign guests showing the urban structure of the city and some of its topographical features. Participants reported that it was also fruitful to have these four days to get to know each other both professionally and personally. For the Royal Institute of Technology and other professionals in the audience it was a public urban conference.
