Cities and regions

For centuries cities attract people to work, live and consume there. The role of cities as economic drivers is diverse and complex. 

Erasmus UPTs experts in urban economy research and study:

  • labor and housing markets,
  • urban amenities and retail,
  • urban management.

Actual urban performance as well as questions of image and identity are at the forefront of their academic studies.

Performance and strategy

Cities also implement policies. For example, by strategically intervening in the economy of the city, the working, living and residential climate can be strengthened. The experts at Erasmus UPT provide sound scientific research for this type of policy choice.
