Attention! There is little time to submit your application. Deadline is
Monday, 16th October 2023, 12:00 CEST

You will be notified the day after, in the evening, if your contribution will be admitted to be presented at the conference “Transforming Cities: Shaping Development Policies” in Gdańsk, Poland on 6th-7th November 2023. The selected participants are asked to attend one or two online meetings a few days after notification of acceptance to discuss how to present their works.

Who can apply? Young planners, preferably young practitioners, aged less than 35 years or with less than 10 years’ post-qualification experience in planning (“35-10-years rule”). Applications can come from individual young planners or from groups with up to 3 members, where every member must meet the 35-10-years rule.

Can’t afford travelling to Gdańsk? No problem. The ECTP-CEU, with the generous support of the Gdańsk city administration (Biuro Architekta Miasta, City Architect’s Office) and of Planning Practice & Research, a Taylor & Francis journal, every group will receive a contribution of 500 euros. Beyond this, we will anyhow ensure that the travelling and hotel costs will be covered at least for one member of each group.

Any question? Don’t hesitate to contact ECTP-CEU’s Young Planners Project Board at

You might also want to take a look at the conference’s general page on Gdańks BAM’s website:,a,251066 (please, ignore their registration form and deadline if you want to participate in the Young Planners Workshop).

Looking forward to receiving shortly (very shortly!) applications from many young planners around Europe.
