CC1 | Urban and Regional Research

Urban and Regional Research is an intensive course dealing with approaches to academic research on urban and regional issues. The lectures and discussions expand on various research themes, research theories and related methodologies. Participants are expected to contribute actively by presenting their PhD project proposals and by participating in the discussions.
Goal of the course is to identify the most promising avenues of research, confront research cultures with each other, and initiate an exchange of ideas that crosses disciplinary boundaries.

After completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • position their own research within the larger framework of research on cities and regions;
  • understand and appreciate various approaches to a particular theme;
  • explore and possibly adopt research directions that have proven their value in other thematic areas of urban and regional research.

In addition, this course provides a setting in which new NETHUR PhD members can get to know each other and learn about new projects being started in the research school.
