Project description

Within this project, a PhD with scientific research in the field of spatial planning will be initiated. The precise topic of this PhD is to be determined in consultation with the supervisor at the start of the research, depending on the candidate's research interests. In this respect, the PhD project seeks to connect with AMRP's research focus: with a focus on an actor-centred approach to contemporary complex spatial issues and transition themes, a socio-spatial approach to spatial development, self-organisation and citizen initiatives. The research will work on several practice-oriented cases in the Flemish context.
