About the Department of Geography and Spatial Planning
We are an international and multilingual team of more than 50 academics from various disciplines who work together to examine spatial development processes on a local, regional and international level. The interface of spatial research and more applied spatial planning perspectives is a fertile ground for timely research endeavors and policy recommendations derived thereof.
