Urban economics at Erasmus UPT

Cities are the nexus of human activities. Cities attract businesses, people and facilitate consumption. Cities as economic drivers are both diverse and complex. At Erasmus UPT we help cities thrive, offering opportunities for firms, residents and local entrepreneurship. We include perspectives towards prosperity, wellbeing and sustainability goals in our work.

Erasmus UPT’s experts help you make better informed decisions through practical and well-grounded analyses. Together with our clients we explore future scenarios and build the thriving cities of tomorrow. Our services include economic outlooks and monitoring, scenario-studies, industry analysis and strategic policy advice.

Informed decision making

Strategic interventions in the economy of the city can strengthen local employment, entrepreneurship, quality of life and housing opportunities. At Erasmus UPT we recognize the complexity of policy making and the inter-connected nature of urban economies. We help you develop balanced urban development strategies that recognize all stakeholders in the city. Our core research areas in urban economics include urban productivity, real estate, urban management and retail, tourism and health and happiness.
