The Centre for mobility and spatial planning (AMRP) is one of the units of the department of Civil Engineering. AMRP is a multidisciplinary and international oriented research-teaching group focused on the elaboration of co-evolutionary planning in reference to emerging spatial challenges, such as citizen and community-led urban development, housing, heritage, sustainable mobility, evolutionary (mainport) economy, resilient water management, energy transition, urban health, open space and climate change. Such 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 andgovernment are regarded as pro-active contributors to spatial transformation.
