At the request of members, INTA organises Professional Training Seminars for targeted audiences to develop skills and competences in specific urban fields. The interdisciplinary programmes of the Training Seminars gives participants the opportunity to see how integrated approaches to the particular field of urbanism are being pursued internationally, and to discuss ways of incorporating emerging trends in local programmes of urban and regional development. The Seminars benefit from INTA's Strategic Partnership with leading knowledge institutions worldwide.

What city tomorrow? City or Country? -…

Which Globalization ? - Jean-Yves Chapuis
