During the last 20 years of transition from socialism to capitalism, Serbian society suffered due to major changes (negative trends) in economic, political and social development. The situation in cities is especially complicated due to politically and economically motivated and non-transparent decision making, particularly regarding strategic projects and illegal/informal construction.This bilateral institutional partnership aims to support a gradual building of a new heuristic approach to urban issues in the post-socialist transition context in Serbia, in parallel with the empowerment of scientific community dealing with these topics (urban development, governance, urban management, urban planning methods and instruments), stakeholders and a set of organizations of civil sector. Also, this IP includes exchange and transfer of knowledge, support to institutional and individual research capacities related to urban development in the post-socialist society, as well as research equipment/infrastructure of the IAUS as the leading national institute in the field of urban and regional planning, facing with large challenges, especially regarding the lack of funding.According to our mutual expertise, our collaboration will focus on:•Knowledge transfer in the field of urban planning methods, instruments and tools (aiming at sustainable and resilient urban development, in accord to post-socialist reforms and changes on different territorial and institutional levels); mechanisms for efficient urban planning governance and implementation; defining major criteria for legal constrains in order to deal with maladjustment of urban planning and strategic projects; •Exchange of experiences on new governance model, arrangements and mechanisms for addressing: politically and economically motivated decision making, weak rule of law, manipulations of public opinion, weak evaluation system of plans, policies and projects (including poor and rare monitoring), insufficient institutional regulations, and illegal and irregular land occupation and construction;•Knowledge transfer on enhancing public participation and transparency in urban decision making and institutional regulation, •Establishment, demonstration and promotion of online database for efficient urban plans implementation and governance, as well as to support networking of urban planners from Serbia and Switzerland.Study visits, workshops, trainings, round table, publications and online database will support sharing of relevant information on urban problems and issues in post-socialist transitional societies, as well as useful transfer of knowledge to urban planners in IAUS and Serbia. This will also help in creating the long-term partnership between IAUS and EPFL, and promote cooperation of Swiss and Serbian urban planners (and urban planning students). Transfer of experience, up-to-date methodologies and tools, as well as purchase of research equipment will help increasing IAUS attractiveness and international competitiveness, and support its aim to become a National Focal Point for international cooperation in the field of urban and regional planning.
