China: Centre Franco-Chinois Ville & Territoire

The Centre Franco-Chinois Ville & Territoire (CFCVT) — French-Chinese City & Territory Centre — was born from an agreement between the University of Nanjing and the Université Paris-Est Créteil (member of the COMUE Paris-Est Sup) which have appointed urban planning and Development as a priority subject of cooperation. Officially, the centre was founded in 2008 during a ceremony in Nanjing.

Its ambition is to become an attractive pole of research and exchanges, a reference in terms of urban planning and development, crossing the experiences of China, France and other European partners.

The French-Chinese Centre and its partners have created an online journal dedicated to urban topics, with a special attention for public policies, lifestyles and case studies.

Brazil: the Attilio Programme

The Attilio* Programme: urbanism, skills, territories, created in 2009, is a French-Brazilian programme aiming to share experiences in the field of urban planning and development training courses, through the creation of connections, exchanges, academic productions, stimulating the approach on different urban and urbanistic realities depending on the establishments and cultural contexts.

The Dialogues France-Brésil ​​/ Diálogos França Brasil, established in 2011, have converged with the Attilio programme to become the main form of regular encounters — biannually — between French and Brazilian researchers in the field of urban planning and development. Its fourth session will take place in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, between 27 and 30 June 2016 (Diálogos França Brasil 4).

Furthermore, these encounters are an opportunity to include other French or Portuguese-speaking researchers to these Dialogues over work sessions between the ANPUR (Associação Nacional de Pós-graduação e Pesquisa em Planejamento Urbano e Regional) and the APERAU (Association pour la Promotion  de l’Enseignement et de la Recherche en Aménagement et Urbanisme), oriented in the same direction.

*Attilio: from the name of Attilio Corrêa Lima, the first Brazilian doctor urbanism trained in the IUUP (Institut Universitaire d'Urbanisme de Paris) in France, in 1930.

Three key words: "urbanism", "skills", "territories".

▪ Urbanism

Urbanism is a multidisciplinary professional field including researchers and academic teachers as well as political decision-makers and field operators.
This dimension implies knowledge of the general organization of the field, social stakeholders, professions, rules dissemination channels, ideas and innovations, challenges to build open and democratic cities, among others. The Brazilian situations are already quite diverse and turned out instructive to understand and act in the French (or European) context, and reciprocally.

▪ Skills

By skills we mean the ability to make the most of the aptitudes and knowledge in situation.
The urbanism training is the common thread of the programme: exploring the similarities and differences, the institutional level taken up by urbanism in both countries, to grasp the shared preoccupation of what should or could be the urban planner’s training in a rapidly changing urban reality.

▪ Territories

The field of urbanism concerns territories of various scales: from micro to macro, street corners, neighbourhoods, small towns and big cities, urban areas, metropolises and gigantic conurbations.
The importance of scales varies depending on the contexts, which makes the main issue here an issue of governance, which could elsewhere be the issue of economic development, housing, public spaces, education, health, etc.

Generally speaking, urbanism is about public action and regulation.

Skills in this field are shared and fluctuate between the various levels, local, regional (states), federal — in Brazil — and European — for France.
