The project funded through the Scientific Cooperation Funding Opportunity jointly offered by The Polish Academy of Science and The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science held at the University of Lodz, October 11-12, 2017.

The seminar was meant to promote academic collaboration between Polish and Japanese researchers in the areas of urban resilience and sustainability science. Participants indicated their research areas and collaboration needs, and within smaller groups they will consider what collaboration opportunities emerge for the future.

Apart from it, the background information was provided on funding mechanisms available to support further collaboration.
