At the heart of INTA's mission is the transfer of know-how on strategic urban development. Members from over 60 countries use INTA as a platform to share and support practice and experience among peers, across departments and sectors.INTA stands for the open exchange of knowledge with the ambition to make urban development projects worldwide more sustainable, balanced and connected.

Several methods are used within INTA to facilitate the dialogue between stakeholders. The INTA Roundtable is the most accessible   format of INTA's activities. During two to three days a selected group of international INTA members with specific experience in a certain field is invited by the host institution to review the current state of a particular urban development project or strategy. After optional site visits, the INTA practitioners engage in a roundtable discussion with local decision or opinion makers. Presentations are followed by reactions from the local experts, translating the international practice to the local context. This interaction generates an inspiring and constructive, forward-looking dialogue.

The INTA Roundtables produce refreshing and heartening ideas, concepts and visualizations on the future challenges of a city or region. The result is a lively and interactive conference in an original and inventive format.
