Urban and Regional Economics
Urban and Regional Economics research at Erasmus UPT focuses on four main research themes:
- Innovation and Clustering
- Real Estate and Area Development
- Place Marketing and Branding
- Economics of Tourism and Events
Our experts in urban and regional economics share an interest in the development of regions, cities and urban areas. They translate academic knowledge into practical advice for public and private actors working in the field, e.g. at municipalities, provinces, project developers and housing corporations.
Apart from contract research for (local) governments and businesses, they also participate in European (research) programmes such as Urbact, ESPON and the 7th framework programme, and international comparative research projects of the European Institute for Comparative Urban Research (Euricur).
