Urban challenges have become increasingly important in policy making in Europe during recent decades and greater resources and research activities have been directed toward addressing these challenges. While cities during the 1970s and 1980s were mainly considered as problem containers, they have, perhaps due to globalisation, become core localities of the present efforts to strengthen national and European competitiveness (ESDP 1999; Brenner 2004; Ache and Andersen 2008; Andersen et al. 2009).
