NEW RESEARCH PROGRAMME: Spatial Planning for Change (SPLACH)

CITTA coordinated a successful application to the very competitive Joint Activities Programmes (PAC) call under the COMPETE 2020 Program

SPLACH - Spatial Planning for Change - is a 3 year, 1.8 million euro research programme, to be developed by CITTA, DINÂMIA'CET-IUL (University of Lisbon) and GOVCOPP (University of Aveiro). It aims at preparing a body of transformative planning policies, implementation mechanisms, and decision support systems, able to guide Portuguese planning practice towards a transition to a low carbon and social inclusive urban system.
Paulo Pinho, the Director of CITTA, is the Principal Investigator of the Programme.

WP 1 - Contemporary spatial dynamics (and governance)
