The Europan 13 Forum of Cities and Juries took place on November 6th and 7th, 2015 in Bratislava, Slovakia. It was the occasion, for the cities participating to the 13th session of the competition and the national juries granting the prizes, to meet at the European scale and discuss about a shortlist of projects.
One of the main goals was to create a common culture for the experts involved in the projects evaluation before making the final choice, during a second session of the national juries. This Forum was therefore the chance for structured and informal exchanges between the juries and sites representatives, the latter delegating the choice of the winning teams to the former.
Organised by Europan's European secretariat, with the participation of the national secretaries and in partnership with the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Bratislava, the Forum s'was divided into 2 days –Friday, with two lectures on the topic of "Inhabiting European Cities", visits -in Bratislava- of urban and architectural sites and -in Wien (AT)- of implementations made by teams rewarded after former sessions of the competition; and Saturday with Working Groups gathering the site representatives and jury membreson a shortlist of projects.
On Saturday night, a reception closed the event at the Stará tržnica, Bratislava's former covered market.
The official results announcement will be made on December 4th, 2015, at 8:30 (Paris time).
