Ghent University (Belgium) – AMRP (Afdeling Mobiliteit en Ruimtelijke Planning / Centre for Mobility and Spatial Planning)
AMRP is focused on the elaboration of co-evolutionary planning in reference to emerging spatial challenges, such as citizens and community-led urban development, housing, heritage, sustainable mobility, evolutionary (mainport) economy, resilient water management, energy transition, urban health, open space and climate change.
Research and education regarding cycling is particularly focused on sustainable mobility and spatial planning, including the topics economy, equity and safety.
The emerging spatial challenges are characterized by uncertainty, new actors, a changing playing field and institutional landscape. Research takes place according to the principles of actor-relational governance, in which both citizens, businesses and government are regarded as pro-active contributors to spatial transformation.
Object of attention are the unique features of the Eurodelta (rivers Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt) and Flemish urban landscape. Its characteristic ‘horizontal metropolitan conditions’ are studied in comparison with cities, metropolitan areas and regional delta’s across Europe and the world.
