Researchers, research publications and research projects
The third-cycle subject area of Urban Studies can be defined as the scientific study of the content, form, planning and transformation of urban areas. The subject is positioned in the exciting interface between social and cultural practices and the material world of landscapes, buildings, infrastructures and everyday objects.
An important task for Urban Studies is to collaborate with industry, municipalities or other parties on different projects. It is possible to collaborate with us in many ways, with relation to our research and our first-cycle courses and study programmes. Degree projects, conferences, contract education, accompanying and commissioned research are examples of activities that all take place in collaboration with society.
