EDAR Doctoral Program of Architecture and Sciences of the City at EPFL's series of lectures SCHOLARS in Transition aims at giving a voice to contemporary scholars who, within their ongoing research activity, are experiencing a « transition » condition. Their contribution to new, emerging research topics, tentative interpretations and unconventional approaches, marks the intersection of their personal research agendas, the evolution of their discipline, the public debate, and the availability of sources and data. SCHOLARS in Transition will be a means of a collective debate on the potential of scientific initiative and responsibility of scholars in the fields of Architecture, Urbanism, Regional and Urban Studies.
