Corvinus for Night-Time Economy Recovery with Top Universities and Professionals“Nighttime and leisure economy” is an increasingly important part of contemporary urban policy research and practice.
“Nighttime and leisure economy” is an increasingly important part of contemporary urban policy research and practice. Researchers from top universities have worked together to come up with a Global Night-Time Recovery Plan (GNRP) to assist the recovery of nightlife from the crisis caused by the global pandemic. A recent chapter of GNRP, focusing on governance issues was led by a young researcher from Corvinus.
Nándor Petrovics, assistant lecturer at the Institute for Economic and Public Policy took part in the Global Night-Time Recovery Plan (GNRP) project as chapter lead for the ’Nighttime Governance in the Times of COVID-19: Capacity Building for Night-Mayors and Other Nighttime Governance Institutions’ chapter.
The GNRP project is coordinated by VibeLab, a global think-tank for night-time economy development, and it is supported by leading European and American research organizations such as Fraunhofer Institute, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and PennPraxis (University of Pennsylvania).
In the chapter, Petrovics and his colleagues from the Harvard University, McGill University Montreal, University of Toronto and the University of Melbourne provided case studies from Montreal, Helsinki, Tokyo, Vilnius and Melbourne, as well as practical recommendations for the cooperation between nighttime and leisure economy actors in order to develop self-organizing models and effective lobbying schemes for sustaining and restarting their economic and cultural activities during and after the hard times of the global pandemic.
The chapter also attracted global attention: more than 70 nighttime managers and professionals from more than 50 countries participated at its virtual presentation, which featured even in mainstream American media.
